Darrel KnutsonI am a candidate for reelection to the board because I would like to continue trying to make the board a more responsive and functional group. As a member I will continue work to make the board more like the guidance group it should be and get it out of the day-to-day operations managers it seems to have become. The board appoints the officers who should be doing the actual management with the president and other officers having actual control. I have pushed the effort to make the president the actual operations manager. I have also been heavily involved in the clean up and restoration of the space after the flood

I was taught by me dad to try and learn new things and to get involved at a very early age. Since then I have been a “hacker” all of my life with an emphasis on woodworking and learning what I needed to do what I wanted. I love the Quelab because as I tell people, it is an adult playhouse. It has the tools members can use to learn and make things to their hearts desire. More importantly, it has a diverse membership of people with the knowledge and desire to help other people learn and “do”. I have donated a lot of tools and time to help expand the capabilities of Quelab and will continue to do so. I would like to see us return to having classes, both paid and free, to teach members new skills and most importantly, retain members to grow the organization. My background as a retired US Air Force pilot and computer systems engineer has taught me that skills you learn at any age help you explore and grow in other areas.
