I am Ken Baker, Secretary Treasurer for the coming year. I was born in 1947 in Regina and spent the 1st 18 years of my life on a farm south of Regina. In 1965 I attended the Saskatchewan Technical Institute in Moose Jaw where I spent the next couple of years. Upon graduation I took a job in Calgary with the Canada Revenue Agency where I spent the 1st 10 years of my working life.
In 1968 I met Ann. We married in 1969. We have 2 children (both in Calgary) and 2 grandchildren.
In 1978 I left the Canada Revenue Agency and started my own accounting practice. For the next 28 years I met and worked with many wonderful people. One of those people introduced me to Gyro Club of Calgary in 1995. I joined almost immediately. Probably the 2nd best thing that ever happened to me (see preceding paragraph)!
Since joining Gyro, I have served in Club as Treasurer and President. I have served District as the Governor in 2011-2012 and this will be my 3rd term as your District Secretary Treasurer. Needless to say I am proud to be involved with our wonderful organization.
In 1996 we went to our 1st International Convention and we were hooked. Over the past 20 years Ann and I have attended many conventions, both District and International. We are truly blessed to have met so many people from across Canada and the United States that we are proud to call our friends.
For the Good of Gyro
