This is to express my interest in serving again as Secretary of the Board for the Cascade Blues Association during 2015. During the past year I served in that role, after beginning service as an At-Large member of the Board in July of 2013.  In addition to participating in Board meetings, I have assisted the Association by working at the CBA merchandise tent during the Waterfront Blues Festival; participating in the annual Picnic; working at the rummage sale; and assisting at the Muddy Awards ceremonies.

My background includes a strong record of volunteering, including serving as President of the Promotional Marketing Association of Northern California (2011), President (2006 and 2007) and several other roles for the Northwest Promotional Marketing Association (2003 – 2008); Board Member and Treasurer for the Northwest Collegiate Umpires Association (1996 – 2006); and for two terms as President of the Portland Baseball Umpires Association (1996 and 1997).  I was named the Promotional Products Association International / RAC National Volunteer of the Year in 2012.

I look forward to contributing further and learning more about the CBA and the Blues, and to the opportunity to serve the Association. I will appreciate your voting for me for Secretary.

Respectfully submitted,

Jon Pierce
