I have over 40 years of experience in public service. Having retired from the USAF and Urbana Fire Department in Illinois my focus has been on helping others in need.
As an Assistant Chief I have hours and hours and hours, did I mention hours of training in managing people, events, conducting training, responding to calls, and putting out fires! Any organization including our Parrot Head Club has the occasional spot fire and I want to help extinguish those as quickly and smoothly as possible.
I currently work with a diverse group at a software company that provides applications for fire departments, EMS Agencies, and hospitals. There are many voices from many backgrounds, cultures, and experiences. Lots of great ideas that require collaboration and prioritization. We have great ideas coming from fellow PCBPH. As a board member working with the rest of the board, we can facilitate those ideas and move them forward to Party With a Purpose!
The “nominees” for the board have already been meeting, we work well together but know we cannot do it all. If elected, we plan to rely on the past board members (who are being more than generous in their guidance) and our fellow Parrot Heads for help!
We must have group participation to pilot our Pirate Ship. We have over 400 members now with lots of talent. Step on up Matey’s raise the sails and jump on board!
That’s enough of an introduction cuz it is 5 O’clock somewhere and there’s a party going on without me!
