Steve Bishkoff elected to the National Psoriasis Foundation Board of Directors
PORTLAND, Ore. (Jan. 11, 2012)—National Psoriasis Foundation elected Steve Bishkoff, of Oakhurst, N.J., to its Board of Directors as a result of his dedication to the organization as a member, advocate and volunteer.
A Psoriasis Foundation member and volunteer since 2003, Bishkoff helped shape the Foundation's advocacy department, serving as its advisor when the department was first established in 2003. Throughout the past 8 years, he's supported various advocacy-related initiatives such as Capitol Hill Day, where he and other advocates from around the country met with members of Congress for psoriasis research.
In addition, Bishkoff was instrumental in bringing Sen. Robert Menendez (D.-N.J.) as the lead sponsor of the Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis Research, Cure, and Care Act (PPARCCA) when it was first introduced in Congress in 2007. PPARCCA, led by the National Psoriasis Foundation and its advocates, is the first-ever psoriasis-specific legislation to be considered by Congress.
Bishkoff currently is a senior recruiter and senior account executive with BridgeView IT, Inc., a national IT industry placement and recruitment firm in Summit, N.J. He brings more than 15 years of sales, business development and recruitment experience to the board.
As a member of the National Psoriasis Foundation volunteer board, Bishkoff will help direct the organization by evaluating and approving long-term plans, determining goals and providing financial oversight. Board members also work with Randy Beranek, president and CEO of the National Psoriasis Foundation, to accomplish the organization's goals.
