A New President Coming on Board
By: Randy Fox
Barney Gorin, a 23-year Kentlands resident, is the new KCA President. He is a past KCA board member, and was active in the founding of the Kentlands Community Foundation, where he served as President in the early 1990's.
With a Master's Degree in engineering and business administration, Barney specialized in spacecraft and most particularly in the rocket propulsion systems that maintain and adjust their orbits. His engineering work was supplemented by proposal management and writing assignments that were generally, but not always, focused on federal government contracts.
Armed with a professional background as an engineer, his experience will be instrumental in ensuring there is an overall assessment of KCA facilities and common assets. As President, Barney plans to review maintenance of those areas including the retaining wall and continually track their condition. He plans oversight of the reserves and the funding needed to maintain KCA’s common assets over time and, help alleviate spikes in assessments to cover unplanned costs.
Barney’s other goals include seeing that CMC itself is managed, implementing Board decisions and recruiting good volunteers and appointing them to committees.
