Nov. 17 – “Challenges of Rebuilding After the Fires,” Keith Woods

Keith Woods, CEO of the North Coast Builders Exchange, estimates that it will take about nine years to complete the rebuilding of homes lost in the Santa Rosa fires.And there was already a housing shortage before the fires. So how and when will we handle this crisis? And how is this situation currently impacting our local economy? Woods will share his ideas and some food for thought on these issues.

Woods is a native of the San Francisco Bay Area, and majored in Journalism at Fresno State University. He is a graduate of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Institute for Organization Management. His professional experience includes 45 years of organizational management work. Woods served as President of the Santa Rosa Chamber.

Nov. 24 – “Migration and Upending the Western Political Order,” Mark Randol

Migration is a fundamental feature of human history. But what is different today? Notwithstanding our humanitarian impulses, no country can accommodate all the people from impoverished countries who wish to migrate. Leaders equivocate. Voters rebel. For the first time in decades, leaders of Western nations are questioning the basic principles of democracy – and governing as if those principles no longer apply.

Mark Randol retired after 35 years of military and federal civil service and moved to Oakmont in 2011. He served as the senior specialist in domestic intelligence and counterterrorism at the Congressional Research Service (CRS) in Washington, D.C., and was also the director of Counterterrorism Policy at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Randol is a graduate of U.C. Berkeley and Georgetown University and served for more than eight years in the U.S. Air Force. He continues to teach and lecture on the topics of domestic terrorism and counterintelligence.
