2013 BOD

Bill Steffen, Butch Tanis, Bill Muenzenmaier, Lee Korotzer, Bob Leonard

The 2013-2014 board biographies are outlined below. Board members from prior years are shown here

Bill Steffen  -  President
Bill has been here before and before and before; actually Bill has been in every seat of this board and sometimes more than once! Obviously he is a sucker for punishment, but he keeps coming back! He is well known to all in the community (both local and railroad), being a somewhat local boy. He has done an exceptional job in all the previous positions, we figured, what can it hurt?. An avid train watcher, modeler and traveler, he enjoys the passing train whether 1:1 , or scaled down.

Bob Leonard  -  Treasurer
Bob has given up the Secretary post and retained the position of Treasurer for another year. He can no longer add comments to the minutes, no matter how terse, or satirical. Besides, he couldn’t get the books balanced so we gave him another year to get something in writing explaining it wasn’t his fault. Maybe by the end of the next term the money will show up!

Lee Korotzer  -  Director
Lee is the new guy! Not only new to the board, but also to the museum, but not to railroading. He has some original ideas for improvements and direction that will benefit the museum in the future, so that is why he is here. You could call him a visionary among the un-seeing, the forest for the trees cliché, he sees the forest. Lee is also affiliated with the NMRA as a volunteer to keep the masses happy at the national conventions. We lucked out with Lee, he came as a package, his partner Julia is quite eager to learn and is equally interested in the hobby and the museum.
