I’d like to be the first to congratulate the new Board of Directors of Camp Quest West for the 2017 season:
Ross Blocher, Vernon Brewer, Jay Harel, Sitar Harel, Courtney Koegle, Mike Koegle, Joel Layton, Chris Lindstrom, Trevor Lynn, Brian Parra, Tucker Phelps, Kaitlin Pike, Megan Pike, Neil Polzin, Liz Shoemaker, and Philip Starner
The Board of Directors of Camp Quest West, a collection of educators, camp professionals and generous volunteers, oversees the planning and implementation of our camp and approves all the volunteers and Camp Directors to make sure that Camp Quest West continues to provide an excellent summer camp at our three sessions in Northern and Southern California. This year we will be continuing to expand our program and grow our camps.
Recently, we have adopted new election procedures and the board members will be serving staggered two-year terms. Elections will be held each August for half the terms. New board members are elected by the current board. Please submit a letter of intent to the board president before August to be considered for the 2018 season.
I would like to thank our outgoing board members for their dedication and service:
NaToya Faughnder was instrumental in developing CWQ’s Leadership Track program and we wish her well on earning her Ph.D in Education.
Jonathan Harvey served for many years as our treasurer and volunteered for many years as camp staff and will continue to volunteer on behalf of CQW.
Diana Speer was instrumental as our organization’s registrar and will continue to provide critical support for our administrative processes.
And David Diskin, our former president, a hearty thank you for presiding over the organization and working tirelessly to fundraise on our behalf and establish many of our technical processes.
I look forward to working with the board on our many challenges in the new year.
