My name is Ken Nesper and I am well-versed in the responsibilities of being the secretary on the board of directors in a volunteer organization.
In 2018, I completed two 2-year terms as secretary of the Mid-Eastern Region (MER) of the National Model Railroad Association (NMRA). Previously, I served four 2-year term as secretary of the League of Women Voters of DC (yes, there are male members of the League). I have also served as secretary of the Administrative Board of my church. In addition to officially documenting the meetings of the board, I see the secretary playing a key role in keeping the membership informed about board activities.
In addition to being a charter member of OSK (#9), I am a life member of the NMRA, MER and B&O Railroad Museum and an annual member of the B&O Railroad Historical Society and the National Railway Historical Society. I principally model an operations-oriented urban industrial railroad loosely based on the B&O’s Alexandria Subdivision. In the last few years, I have added an On30 layout inspired by the Ohio River & Western. I retired from the Postal Service in 2009. My wife and I reside in the Brookland neighborhood of NE DC.
