Jeff Brockett, Tennessee

Woodturning is a passion, and having the time to volunteer for both the AAW and my local chapter allows me the opportunity to pay it forward. The AAW is an evolving, always-changing organization dedicated to furthering the craft of woodturning. As the AAW continues to grow, having Board members with management skills becomes more important.

I held high-level executive positions prior to retirement that required strong leadership skills. These skills included management of large teams; planning, organization, and execution of complex projects; and the ability to make tough decisions. In addition, I also served on several local and regional non-profit boards and gained an insight as to how those organizations operate.

I have been a member of the Tennessee Association of Woodturners for several years, serving as president, secretary, and newsletter editor. Currently, I serve on the Board of Directors for the AAW and have held the position of vice-president for two years. In addition, I have served as chair of the nominating committee and chair of the contracts committee. The opportunity to serve as the AAW symposium chair and the symposium demonstrator selection chair has provided insight to long-term planning, budgeting, and implementation of changes that will make the Symposium experience more meaningful for attendees. My time on the Board is a priority that I give full attention to.

Other woodturners ask me why I am running for a second term—it’s fun! I have the opportunity to draw on my leadership skills and learning experiences from chapter responsibilities, and I get to work with some very amazing and talented people. I respectfully ask for your support to continue to help the AAW grow its programs and serve its membership.
