When did you join the Board?
I joined the Board of Directors in 1972. I also served as President of the Chamber in 1990 and 1991. I helped start the Economic Development Council and helped to create the Governmental Affairs sections when we determined that we needed better legislative input and legislative representation for matters of concern to the Chamber members.

I love to play golf, travel and most importantly watch my grandchildren in their performances and sporting events. I am also an avid Dodgers fan and UCLA fan.
