Ted accepted the responsibility of Treasurer in 2010. A position he has held since, keeping the organization’s books in good order and informing the Board of all financial activities. Ted has also volunteered multiple times when needed to fill a job. For instance, in 2013 no one could be found who was willing be ABAS President. Even though he was the Treasurer and often out of state, Ted stepped up to the plate and took on the additional position, presiding over Board meetings and making decisions critical to the functioning of the chapter for two years when he recruited Rob Ripma for the job. In early 2017 when a new website was being created, once again Ted stepped in learning the ropes of administering a webpage and using his skills to add the content and facilitate updates. He continues to act as webmaster and updates the content.
Just what else would he be willing to do? How about membership chair? He took on this position in May, 2017 when the previous chair moved out of state. But evidently, all of this was not enough to suck up all his free time, so he was part of a committee to plan the content of the Audubon LifeLines, greatly improving the chapter newsletter during its transition to a new editor. He even hosted a meeting at his home where he treated everyone to a fabulous homemade lasagna.
