John Porter, a 1983 graduate in business from Tualatin, is the 2011-2012 president of the OSUAA Board of Directors. Porter is president and chief executive officer at AAA Oregon/Idaho in Portland.
Board members selected to serve on Porter’s new executive committee are:
Joth Ricci, a 1991 education graduate from Portland, first vice president; Linda Chandler Hirneise, a 1975 business graduate from Agoura Hills, Calif., second vice president; Pam Stebbeds Knowles, a 1977 liberal arts graduate from Portland, who will continue for a second year as treasurer; Penny Yano Atkins, a 1979 business graduate from Caldwell, Idaho, immediate past president and alumni board representative to the OSU Foundation Board of Trustees, and Elise Ferol McClure, a 1981 business graduate from Portland, who is the OSUF trustees’ representative to the alumni board.
The alumni association also elected two new board members: Tim Metcalf, a 1982 business graduate from San Clemente, Calif., and Dave Chin, a 1980 engineering graduate from Portland.
Metcalf and Chin are the newest additions to the 15-member board and will each serve an initial three-year term with eligibility for another term.
The board of directors oversees the operation of the alumni association, working closely with Executive Director Scott Greenwood, ’88, the rest of the association’s professional staff and its network of volunteers.
