This event marks our move into the next era as we honor and share the pride of leadership in our community with the families, leaders, and businesses from all industries that make our community strong.

He worked in the oil industry for 47 years, retiring in 2003. He joined our Club in 1997 and soon became Director of Membership. In 1998, he became Vice President and Membership Director. In 2002, he became the President of our Club and held that position until 2010. He served as interim General Manager and remained on the board until his retirement in 2015.

      Our inaugural Chairman’s Circle of Leadership event on Saturday, March 12, 2016 will be a fundraising event, providing much needed financial stability for our Club by participating in the creation of our Chairman’s Circle of Leadership honor wall accompanied with a live and silent auction emceed by Bakersfield's very own Don Clark and featuring a 5 course dinner with live music and dancing from Last Call.
