We are excited to welcome Melanie Delgado as the newest member of the BPPE Advisory Committee,” said Director Kirchmeyer. “Consumer protection is the top priority for BPPE and the consumer advocate role is instrumental in representing student voices. Delgado’s experience and skills in advocacy are well-suited to further California’s consumer protection efforts.”
