Executive Team

The executive team is a three-sister team elected by the Conference of Presentation Sisters. The three leaders share the responsibilities of the Conference. The team, once elected, discusses and decides who among them will handle the roles and responsibilities of each position. Each member serves in her leadership role for a two-year term. The team is assisted by Lisa Olson, Conference coordinator.
