PROTEC17 warmly welcomes City of Portland member-leader Emily Tabachnick to the PROTEC17 Executive Board. She was appointed to fill the seat vacated by Trustee Sarah Spotts who left employment with the City of Portland in February for a new job opportunity in Bellingham, Washington. 

Tabachnick is an IT Analyst for the Portland’s Bureau of Technology Services (BTS). She provides software support and computer hardware repair and replacement for the Portland Police Bureau. She also serves on the BTS Equity Committee and is co-chair of the BTS Labor Management Committee. 

A proud union member since 2008 when she started her job with the City, Tabachnick has taken on several union leadership roles over the years including Steward and Regional Executive Committee delegate. Her goal on the Board is to help all PROTEC17 members prosper through a collaborative approach.

Tabachnick has a background in the fine arts, loves all dogs, and can frequently be found at Star Trek conventions.
