20-21 Leadership CREF
   

President, Jo Lucey

I joined Rotary in 2016 after a career in aerospace engineering (satellites and satellite operations) and a second career as an elected official in public education.  I’m the parent of two IPOs (Income Producing Offspring) whom I adore.  My husband and I love hiking and enjoy traveling.  I’ll be leading the CREF organization and look forward to working with everyone as we ‘do good in the world.’
 

Vice-President, Bill Wilson

 

Treasurer, Jim Davis

I joined the Cupertino Rotary in February 2019 to help the president of that year pad her new member statistics. Prior to that, for many years I volunteered for Rotary events such as Fall Fest, Golf Tournament, Rebuilding, Thanksgiving turkey delivery and Operation Snowflake. I retired in 2018 after 40 years in high tech, most recently with Microsemi Corp as the Vice President of Software Development. These days I can be found riding my road bike, playing and enjoying music, working in the yard, and having a large cat sit in my lap while reading (or anything else that requires me to sit down)

Writing, art and history are also important interests, and I am involved in supporting science and math education and philanthropy in connection with Graniterock, my family’s 120 year old construction business.

Director, Hung Wei

I joined Cupertino Rotary in 2007 - one of the best decisions in life.  Rotary  connects me with good-hearted people who become life-long friends. Rotary also opens opportunities to expand my horizon in service and learning.  I wish to grow Rotary impact by bringing new members into Rotary.  Thus I’m currently happily serving as 2020-2021 District 5170 Membership Chair. 

Administrator, Barbara McArthur

I joined Cupertino Rotary in 2011 after a career as a Human Resources executive in high tech and the food services industry. It has been very rewarding to join my fellow Cupertino Rotarians in our club’s many service projects and fundraising events.  I became a member of the Board of CREF in 2015 to assist in the work of this foundation and its financial support of Cupertino Rotary. Beginning in July 2020 I serve as Administrator, facilitating and keeping track of the many grants done by our club’s Avenue of Service committees and Board each and every year.
