A note about serving on the board of directors.

Council of Elders

Larry Schumer (term began September, 2014)
Alex Tadeskung (term began March, 2010)
Dianne Arman (inactive- term began April 2015)
  Note: the IPA policy is that an elder on the IPA board will be inactive as an elder.


IPA Elders are a group of members of long standing and reputation, selected and appointed by the IPA Board. It is not necessary for them to be currently active members of the IPA. They are chosen for their experience, integrity, and good judgment.

The purpose of the Council is to arbitrate disputes or complaints that cannot be resolved by the IPA Board of Directors or other means. All IPA members are welcome to contact an Elder whenever their assistance is needed.

Each Elder serves for five years.

To contact the Elders, send an e-mail to:

Member Advocate

The Member Advocate is appointed by the board to act as an initial contact for members with issues to resolve and will guide members to the appropriate bodies either within the IPA or outside of it.

Dianea Kohl is our current Member Advocate and may be reached by email at
