President Terry Quinn:
I am now serving a third term as a BVSA Director, which I consider a distinct honor and privilege.
We have been full time residents since 2002, having been homeowners since 1980. In that time, we've seen many changes here, almost all to the good.
I was in marketing management for over thirty years with one manufacturing company. That, in addition to my work on the Board and with committees here in Bear Valley, has taught me a lot about how a well-run business should work.
I enjoy and look forward to another year of service for my neighbors here in Bear Valley Springs.
Vice President Larry Thompson:
After college in 1968, I joined the U.S. Marine Corps and served a combat tour in Viet Nam as a helicopter pilot. I left active duty in 1974 and stayed in the reserve until I retired in 1995. While in the reserve, my civilian jobs were a salesman, manager, credit manager and general manager for three different companies.
My wife, Bev, and I began visiting some friends in Bear Valley in 1998 and thought this would be a great place to live as we had horses and liked the mountains. A few years later we bought our home here.
We met a few people and I joined the trail crew. Then we joined a few other clubs and got to know some more of the great people who live here. We have enjoyed many of the
amenities and this place feels like home.
Last year, I was fortunate to be elected to the Board of Directors and served as the treasurer. With the help of the gifted staff at the BVSA office and the other directors, I learned a lot about what is required to keep our beautiful valley a place we are all proud of. There is a lot of work that goes on daily to keep things running smoothly. Being re-elected for another term on the Board is an honor and a privilege, so thank you. Please come to our meetings and be a contributor to what’s going on.
Treasurer John McGuffey:
My wife and I fell in love with the Bear Valley Springs in 2003, and became full time residents in December 2008. We enjoy meeting our valley neighbors and have been active in the valley with various clubs and committees. We are frequent users of the amenities including the dog park, with our his and her small dogs.
Last term I was privileged to serve on the Finance Advisory Committee, and as Treasurer I will continue to serve on that committee. I am committed to this exceptional community and look forward to serving as a BVSA Director. From my experience as a small business owner I know that balancing community needs and desires with fiscal responsibility is vital to the health of our wonderful valley.
I am honored to serve on the BVSA board as a BVSA director.
Director Jeanne D. Gray:
My husband and I are long-time residents of Bear Valley, having raised our children here. Our grandchildren are now growing up in this wonderful valley.
I have been a member of numerous committees for the Association, including Rules, Golf, Equestrian, and Recreation. As a prior Association Board Member for a number of years, I served as Secretary, Vice-President, President and Director. I have a strong understanding of our Association governing documents and the unique business and practice challenges the Association experiences. I have been a past member of the BVSA-CSD Liaison Committee and understand the distinctive inter-relationship of the BVSA and CSD.
I have served on CSD’s Disaster Council and currently teach Medical Management modules for CSD’s Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). I am very committed to this exceptional community. I recognize the need for balance between what we need and what we want. I am committed to preserving this valley’s rural atmosphere, which is the reason most of us moved here in the first place. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or concerns. My contact information can be found on this website by clicking here. I look forward to serving you on the BVSA Board of Directors.
Director Jack Wildermuth:
After almost 50 years in the workplace as an electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, and quality manager, I am now enjoying an active retirement in this beautiful, truly unique community. It’s important to me to preserve the lifestyle that drew me to BVS.
Shortly after settling into our BVS home in 2003, I volunteered to serve on the Environmental Control Committee. I spent 6 years with the ECC, 5 of them as chairperson. I then joined the Community Services District Infrastructure Committee, and currently serve on the CSD Administration Committee.
I attended several colleges and received diplomas from numerous industrial schools, but more importantly, and certainly more relevant are the 8 years I have spent studying and learning the BVSA C&Rs, ECC Rules, BVSA Rules, BVSA Bylaws, the Davis-Sterling Common Development Act, the Brown Act, and Kern Co. codes and ordinances.
