    We'd like to briefly introduce your CHUM officers to you. As the club continues to grow and new people come in, we'd like to make sure that everyone knows where to direct any questions they may have.

    Please don't reply to this thread. If you have something about our officers you'd like to post, please do it in the other thread we've set up for that.

    Holly Uverity - CHUM Past President aka Grand Poohbah 2017-2019

    As the new past president of the club, I'm happy to continue to serve on the board in a more advisory role. I'm looking forward to working with both DivingDoug and watermonkee as they bring new ideas and enthusiasm to the club.

    Hi, y'all! I'm your 2017-2018 CHUM Secretary. My most important responsibility is to maintain the memberships in the club, but I don't limit myself to only that role.

    I've been around this crowd for quite a few years, before I even had an official profile on this forum.

    I knew I wanted to dive after a snorkeling tour in 1995 (I think that is how many people decide to embark on this journey!) I've been a certified diver since that same year. I took a long break to finish raising kids and make $$ to pay for baseball, basketball, dance, drill team, and COLLEGE. Thankfully, I was able to finally go full-steam ahead with my dream - Thanks to CHUM!

    Doug Pagnutti - CHUM President 2017 - forever (or 2019, when I get kicked out)

    I've been a diver since about 2006, when I learned to dive in the beautiful -if somewhat chilly- waters of British Columbia, Canada (Sorry if I apologize a lot, I'm Canadian). Since then I've enjoyed diving any puddle deep enough.

    When I moved to Houston in 2016 I found this great group of divers and have loved being a part of CHUM since. The members of the club are fun, friendly, and really love their diving. They were even brave (or crazy) enough to elect me president after only a year with the club and I hope I can do them proud.

    So although I really have no idea what I'm doing as President, I thankfully have a great bunch of members -and board members in particular- that help me keep this club afloat (and submerged too).

    Richard Phillips - Vice President 2018 - 2020

    I got certified in 2002 through A&M and have been diving on and off since then. I found CHUM a couple years back when I decided to become a bit more active in the diving scene. I love traveling, especially on dive trips and camping trips and try to get away a few times a year, even if it just for the weekend. I’m always up for a dive, so hit me up if you are interested. I also love expanding my diving education, so I can often be spotted in a class somewhere and I am a bit of an equipment geek.

    My primary role as VP will be finding speakers for the monthly meetings, so if you know anyone awesome, let me know.

    Nicole Wendzicki - Treasurer 2018 - 2020

    I got certified in Ohio in 2014. Before I got certified, I had been terrified to even try it, because I thought I would be too claustrophobic. Doing a Discover Scuba Dive, I found that not only was I not claustrophobic, but I absolutely loved the freeing feeling you get underwater. Getting to feel weightless, while seeing all the beautiful wildlife up close has been one of my favorite experiences.

    When I moved to Houston in 2016, I wanted to find a group that enjoyed diving, getting together, and having just an all around good time. I found CHUM and it is exactly that. Now, I've been with the group for almost two years and am happy to take on the challenge of being the new treasurer. For me this will be an awesome learning experience, as well as a chance for me to get to know the members of CHUM better. I'm excited to see what the next two years have in store for CHUM.
