BOARD OF DIRECTORS


The Board consists of five club members elected for a term of one year at a time.  They are nominated
from within the club and elected at the second meeting in June.  After that meeting, they decide among themselves who will assume which office.  They assume their duties at the first meeting in July.

President
Rene Reulet  joined the club in February 2006.  He volunteered to take on the task of finding presenters for club meetings after Bob Renner moved from the area.  He was appointed to an at-large position on the board the same day.  By June 2009, he had served two terms as President and is currently in his third term.  He brings with him and exuberant amount of enthusiasm and a "can do" attitude that we all appreciate.

He is originally from Long Island, NY and came to Coos Bay via California in 1971.  After quite a varied career as a machinist with Lockheed, the U.S. Navy, and the U.S. Forest Service, he retired after 24 years of service from the Beaver Hill Disposal Site as Plant Operator Lead Man. He was a machine shop instructor at Southwestern Oregon Community College.  He says about computers, "They are definitely a learning experience, and I struggle to learn what I can.  That’s why I joined BASCC, to get help and to learn.   It seems that  sometimes computers are very frustrating; and if others are like me, we can all use help now and then.  I also enjoy helping others, so eventually I hope I can give back what I’ve learned to others."

Secretary, Newsletter Editor
John Keenan spent 11 years in Latin America before working  25 years in regulatory compliance for Ecolab in St. Paul, MN.  His 10-15 years of computer contact there were spent  strictly with applications of basic word processing and spread sheets.  They were beige-colored black boxes.  His most daring feat in those years was cleaning lint out of his mouse.  He joined BASCC soon after moving to Coos Bay in late 2001 and got the computer he still uses.   (How old is 6 in computer years?)  Since joining the club, he has learned enough to become more daring, about to the point of his little knowledge being a dangerous thing.  "But the computer still works!"  He has made several presentations based on his online explorations and has served one term on the Board as President.

"Talks over the years have helped me go beyond basics in using the PC.  It's great for lining up travel (10 countries or more), and I consider it indispensable for banking and money management."  My wife considers it indispensable for me to do her shopping beyond Coos Bay, her area of our money management."
 
Treasurer

Member-at-Large
Dorothy Gilhoover
Dorothy Gillhoover has been a BASCC member since 2008. She joined the club to be among other computer users to share experience and learn, and find a shoulder to cry on. She served a year on the Board as Treasurer and felt another good Board position would be as a Member at Large to support and help the Board and members. She dabbles in gardening, writing poetry, painting and drawing, loves animals, the sea shore and the color green. She was born and raised in Oregon, which may explain the color green. She says the Computer Club has been a wonderful resource full of many knowledgeable, fine members, and she recommends anyone with a need to destroy their computer to join up immediately.
 

Member-at-Large

James Moore

James joined the BASCC in 2010 because it sounded interesting to hang around with a group of people who were interested in computers and how to use them. He has decades of experience with IT systems, including "big iron" installations and has worked as an engineer with Burroughs, Digital Equipment, Compaq, and retired from HP with 28 years. James is a retired USAF veteran and specialized in electronic systems during his career with the USAF.
