Board of Advisors

Ralph Munro
Ralph Munro has had a distinguished reputation and career in Washington State Government. He served as Secretary of State 1980-2001. Although he claimed to be retiring from public service at the time, it appears rather that he stepped up the pace and breadth of his public service. He is a leader in environmental efforts and an advocate for the orcas of Puget Sound. In both his official and private lives, he has been involved in many efforts to improve the lives of developmentally disabled children and eliminate polio on the African continent. Ralph has received many awards for his civic, humanitarian and community efforts. Most recently, he received the 2008 C. Davis Award for outstanding civic leadership from the Association of Washington Businesses.
