In August 2018, the Senate confirmed the Presidential appointment of Mr. Keobel (KB) Sakuma to be Palau International Coral Reef Center’s (PICRC) newest board member. Mr. Sakuma brings to the PICRC Board a unique and diverse background with experiences from both the private and government sector, which will be useful for the Center as it continues to build its partnership with both the private and public sector.
Palau International Coral Reef Center (PICRC) is governed by a Board of Directors. This group of men and women are appointed by the President and approved by the Senate. The role of PICRC’s Board of Directors is to provide guidance and oversight to the Center. In addition to providing guidance, the Board of Directors donate time and resources to help the Center fulfill its vision and mission.
