Douglas Spencer- graphic designer

 

Five candidates are running for three open spots on Outpost's Board of Directors. The election runs the month of October and all current Outpost owners can vote, either online or by stopping at a Customer Service Desk for a ballot. Between now and the end of October, we'll be publishing each candidate's statement here on the Sounding Board blog. You may also find all five statements here.

 

Every time I walk into Outpost I feel a sense of family. As an environmentally conscious adult this is important to me and I know a lot of hard work and integrity is needed to accomplish that. I feel that as consumers we need to honor and support establishments that align with our personal convictions; especially those that make every effort to care about the communities they are a part of. Outpost has accomplished this and for that they need to be recognized. It is our duty to give back to the community wherever possible. I wish to give back to Outpost what it has given me. As a board member, I will work to maintain and improve Outpost Natural Foods to the best of my ability.

 

I have served on the Board for the Milwaukee chapter of the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) for the past six years as their newsletter editor and webmaster. In the position, our chapter has received numerous awards detailing our exceptional standards to communication. The chapter’s website, newsletter and member correspondence was an important part of the recognition we received. As a board member, I am part of financial discussions that entail loss in membership, new ways to promote the organization, and positioning ourselves to be relevant to a changing market place. With the help of Alderman Terry Witkowski, I was one of the founding members of the Wilson Park Neighborhood Association. Currently, we organize a seasonal newsletter and promote neighborhood gatherings. In 2000, I graduated from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design (MIAD) with a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Design. I used the skills from that degree to become a freelance graphic designer and have serviced small to medium sized businesses ever since. Currently I have my own LLC and also work as a graphic specialist for a company in New Berlin, WI.
