The previous board consisted of Kemiskidi as chairman, Yogo Kumolo as treasurer, and Wibawa as secretary. The new board for the 2024-2026 period includes Ely Widayati as chairwoman, Athi Munzilah as secretary, and Artati Sri Rejeki as treasurer.

In her speech, the newly appointed chairwoman expressed gratitude for being elected and saw it as a mandate from the members to lead Apikri to greater heights.

Additionally, she mentioned challenges from buyers who impose strict conditions on handicraft products, including quality, guarantees, damaged products, intellectual property rights, and others.

In her closing remarks, she called on all stakeholders to take concrete actions, not just words and ideas. She emphasized that the success of the board would not be achieved by one person alone but through the active participation of everyone involved in Apikri.
