I believe it to be an honor to serve on the board of directors for a historical facility. It is what carries our tradition, our pride, and links us our fellow “family” members around the world.
My history and experience within this Industry gives me a thorough understanding of how far this industry has come. A valuable perspective as it pertains to our industries history and how it is to be cared for.

Like our fellow members, business owners and operators, my intent is to be of service. My goal is to play a supportive part in the organization, and to be “of Service” to the Museum and Hall of Fame. It is the one place where our future generations can come and see what the generations before them sacrificed to keep this Industry strong.
Service and stewardship, these are the key ingredients to keep our history honored and respected.
