1st Vice President – Per Hamnqvist

Per Hamnqvist
Joined WBCCI in 1998 as we went from a tent to a 31ft Classic. First to join our unit over the “Internet”. Registered wbcci.org in 1998 and helped thrust WBCCI into the Internet era. Active in the New England Unit. Past Unit Trustee. Past Unit Treasurer (5 years), Past Unit President (2 terms). Was also the first Web Master for Region 1.

Why do I volunteer my time as a Region officer? Because I have such a great time hanging out with my old and new Airstream buddies. Never a dull moment at a camp fire! I love this lifestyle for seeing North America and I know it takes a bit of work to keep the wheels turning. This is my way of continuing to chip in for the good cause. I gain most satisfaction in this role from seeing the event schedule and participation grow in our region. Let me know what I can do to help you and your unit.

2nd Vice President – Doug Hart

In my non Airstream life I am the President of Penobscot Investment Management Company in Boston. In my spare time I serve as the chair of the board of the Wildlands Trust in Plymouth, among largest land trusts in Massachusetts and I serve on a scientific committee that advises the president of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute on how to invest research funds. My interests are varied. I love to run and have run 11 marathons, ten in Boston and one in San Francisco. I also volunteer annually on a 100 mile mountain trail race in Silverton, Colorado. I am a ham radio operator and enjoy combining that hobby with Airstreaming.

I purchased my first Airstream in 2010, a 19’ Bambi. From there I went to a 25’ Airstream and now have a 2011 31’ Classic. Between working and playing in my Airstream I kept running out of room. I have served as the president of the New England Unit and look forward to doing more for the WBCCI because it does so much for me.
