Homer ClarkPresident of NACFM Board of Directors
I am a retired US Navy Seabee Builder, Petty Officer First Class. I have spent my entire career working in facilities. While in the US Navy, we covered everything from cleaning, maintenance, new construction, remodeling to maintenance scheduling. After retiring from the military, I drove a school bus before becoming the lead maintenance technician at Community Alliance Church (CAC). Two years later I became the Facilities Manager, a new position for the church, and I was tasked with developing a maintenance program. While there, I worked on a capital improvement campaign, a 40,000 sq. ft. addition project. During my tenure at CAC, I joined the NACFM and completed the certification program. In 2015 I retired to spend the next 18 months recovering from two motorcycle accidents. I then spent two years at First Methodist Church doing volunteer maintenance. I currently serve at Oak Hills Christian Church as the Facilities Advisor. I’m a father of four wonderful children and have been married to my high school sweetheart Jenny for 35 years.
