Correction: The OFDDA Board of Directors Update on the back cover of this issue provided an incorrect phone number for Dennis Rogers. His phone number is 971-241-7138.
OFDDA Board of Directors Update
We are excited to announce Jamal Mercado is the newest member on the OFDDA Board of Directors. Jamal, Board Vice President at Lebanon Fire District, was elected at the 2017 Oregon Fire Service Conference in Ashland to fill the Director – Position #4 seat.
It is with sincere appreciation that we recognize Gary Ollerenshaw’s two years of service on the OFDDA board. Gary, who stepped down from the OFDDA board in November, had filled the Director – Position #5 seat. His absence creates a vacancy on the board.
The OFDDA by-laws Article IV. Section B state, “Vacancies on the Board of Directors shall be filled by appointment by a majority vote of the remaining members of the Board until the annual meeting when the general membership shall elect a successor.” If you are a member in good standing and wish to express your interest in being considered to serve on the OFDDA board, notify OFDDA nominating committee chair Dennis Rogers at 971-241-7138. Next, complete and submit a Board Member Application, which can be found under the Documents and Resources > Forms tab.
The Oregon Fire District Directors Association was founded in 1950 when a group of like-minded individuals connected over the desire to form rural fire protection districts in Oregon. The founders understood, as we do today, that working together creates greater opportunities for Oregon’s fire service. More than 67 years later, we continue to exchange information for the mutual benefit of fire districts’ operations and improve the operations of fire districts in Oregon through our unified approach to legislation.
We are successful thanks to volunteers like Jamal and Gary who give of their valuable time, knowledge, and resources to serve Oregon’s fire service!
