Sure, but you'd have to be a committer at the ASF to have access to it:
Message-ID: <4CBF4DE8.8060907@apache.org>
20.10.10 13:15 -0700 - committers@apache.org:
"ASF Board Meeting Summary - October 20, 2010"

PMC chair changes are never announced to a broader audience, AFAICR.
There are other things which currently trouble the ASF community way 
more than this VP change, as every Apache committer can read there and 
which is subject to a press release for everyone to read.

What I learned when talking to users of ASF projects over the years is 
that they mostly don't even know what PMCs are all about, and thus they 
don't care about VPs.

All they care about is features, releases, documentation and support.
