Emory has elected two new members to its Board of Trustees: Teri Plummer McClure, UPS' chief legal officer, and Bishop Mary V. Taylor, resident Bishop of the South Carolina United Methodist Conference.

Teri Plummer McClure is UPS senior vice president for ethics, compliance and legal programs, overseeing all UPS ethics, compliance and legal programs in more than 220 countries where the company conducts business. She also leads UPS public affairs and government relations efforts, advocating increased global trade, stronger business competitiveness and improved economic growth worldwide, among many other public policies. McClure's team supports UPS chairman and CEO Scott Davis' participation on the President's Export Council.

McClure joined the UPS Corporate Legal Department in 1995. Since that time, she has been promoted into various legal and operations roles at UPS, and led the establishment of UPS' Core Counsel Network of outside attorneys. McClure became general counsel and corporate secretary in 2006. She earned her juris doctorate degree from the School of Law.

Bishop Mary V. Taylor is a graduate of Candler School of Theology where she earned a master's of divinity degree. Taylor served 30 years as a member of the United Methodist's Holston Conference in both rural and urban settings, and has held multiple leadership roles in the church. 

In 2004, she became the first woman to serve as Resident Bishop of the Columbia Area (South Carolina Annual Conference) in the United Methodist Conference, and in 2008, was named Resident Bishop of the South Carolina United Methodist Conference. She also serves as president of the UMC's General Commission on the Status and Role of Women.

Newest trustees bring additional depth 

"Our new trustees bring an outstanding depth of experience, expertise and talent to the board and governance of the University. They will provide great service to Emory as we continue our work toward greater eminence in education, scholarship, health care and service to our community," says Rosemary Magee, vice president and secretary of the University, who works closely with the Board of Trustees.

They will serve as term trustees for a six-year initial term. The 43-member Board of Trustees oversees the governance and long-range fiduciary health of the University. Term trustees are selected by the Governance, Trusteeship and Nominations Committee and submitted to the Board of Trustees for consideration and approval.
