As you know, to operate effectively and to achieve the rapid growth goals that we have set for PCSV, it is important that we rely on the expertise and guidance of our Board of Directors. Having experienced, passionate professionals that are available away from the day-to-day operations to guide the company in strategic matters is crucial to our focus, growth and future success.To further our endeavors, we would like to introduce the two newest members to our Board of Directors, Andrew J. Scoggin and Britt E. Ide.
