This gmatprep question always stir up firery debates. The oa is E. Because logically, there is no such thing "as the former chair", it indicates current presence, but "former" is contradictory to current.

It is gmat english, although "as the former chair" is likely to be universally accepted outside of the realm of the gmat.

If i see it in the real, I bet that I choose the wrong. This reasoning is interesting and seems convincing!

An individual cannot not be the former chair of a planning board for 18 consecutive years and attend these meetings at the sametime. instead, the sentence is attempting to say that Joan was actully the chair of the planning board for 18 consecutive years and that she attended these meetings during those 18 years.

Thus, choices A, B, and C and be eliminated. As D is a run on sentence, E is the best answer.
