I am looking forward to serving as your Minnesota Post-Secondary President.


Executive Vice President- Cindy Swenson

Cindy Swenson is serving as your 2018-2019 Executive Vice President of BPA. I have been active in BPA for 2 years. I was Parliamentarian/Historian for Alexandria Technical and Community College my first year and then President my second. My hobbies include spending time with my family, going to as many concerts as I can, and kayaking. One of my favorite things about BPA would be the places we get to travel, and all the different people I have been introduced to along the way. I hope everyone has a great year in BPA, and don’t be shy to try new things and meet new people. We’re all here to help!
