E ?

the word former implies that she was the "former" chair for 18 years..

A is incorrect because "former" is not needed with Joan attended after the coma.

Am I right?

E for me too.

In this question, the qualifier "former" is redundant because the question does not focus on "when" (i.e the point in time) she was the chair. The focus is on the point that when she was chair she attended 400 meetings and ...

So as the point in time is not relevant, the qualifier former is unnecessary.
