Past President Renata Beck - My husband and I have been fortunate to call Central Oregon home since 1989. My career has been in social services and I have seen challenges and hardships of all types in our area. Fortunately we live in a community filled with generous and caring people and I have had the privilege of being affiliated with Quota International for 25 years. This is an organization committed to sharing that aligns with my values. “We change lives” is a true statement. On a local level we may personally know the people we impact and on an international level we know that our sister clubs are promoting our common mission. Quota Cares, Quota Shares.
Secretary Nancy Blankenship - Having the privilege of growing up in Central Oregon, a place known for its volunteers and communities that care, share and help neighbors and friends, Quota has given me the volunteer opportunities to give back. It’s the hands-on projects I love, working side-by-side with others to brighten and enrich the lives of our neighbors who need a helping hand. I have enjoyed belonging to service organizations for the past 25 years, Quota since 2005. It is rewarding and gratifying to see the impact you can have on others’ lives both at home and across the globe.
Treasurer Jeanie Dumont - Business Owner (with Husband Pete) and an Accountant at heart, the role of Treasurer for Quota Int’l of CO suits me well. With our kids grown and out of the house, plus grandchildren in Reno, that gives me some time to volunteer. Quota is the perfect place to volunteer and be a member, as we help so many (see our Buckets of Love) and the camaraderie is awesome! It gives me a great sense of belonging.
Service Director Fran McCormick - I moved to Bend in 2000 for the outdoor life style and the vibrant city. Coming from Albuquerque NM, where I was also a member of Quota International, I have now been a member for over 20 years and have enjoyed being part of an all-volunteer group. As Service Director I am directly in contact with those in need and the many other volunteer organizations that we support. Quota is a worldwide organization, so we can meet Quotarians from all over the world working to improve the lives of others. Here in Central Oregon our group raises funds to benefit our community, Quota truly changes lives!

Vice President Barb Schultz - Quota has provided me a perfect venue for volunteerism while at the same time an opportunity to build lasting friendships. I'm relatively new to Quota but have found the positive energy contagious and I'm excited to have the honor of being on the board for a second term. I have really found my niche here both through my work at the Hospital and my involvement in Quota - making Central Oregon the perfect home.
President Claudia Nordquest - My husband and I moved from California in 2011 and are really enjoying the pace of life here. It truly speaks volumes that San Diego (over 3 million people) has no Quota club, while Bend (around 90,000) has had a lively and productive Quota group since 1977! Along with the rest of QI of Central Oregon, I welcome anyone who's interested to come meet us, learn about us and then join us as we pursue our core values of fellowship and fun while assisting disadvantaged women and their families.
