Current Board Members and Officers
 
President – Lou Raders
 
 
Lou Raders moved to Denver in 1985, first living in the Cherry Creek East neighborhood and then moving to Cherry Creek North.  An attorney by training with expertise in real estate project development and finance and general business, Lou was with the national law firm of Kutak Rock from 1983 until she retired in August 2019.  Lou has lived at four different addresses in Cherry Creek and has loved every minute, first becoming involved with the Cherry Creek East registered neighborhood association and then with the Cherry Creek North Neighborhood Association, as an active member and volunteer for each organization.  Lou has assisted Cherry Creek North and East in the negotiation and drafting of numerous development agreements with developers in order to document the agreements of developers with the Cherry Creek neighborhoods regarding project commitments and limitations.  Lou also served as a member of the Cherry Creek North rezoning task force at the request of then Councilwoman Robb and as a member (now Chair) of the Cherry Creek Steering Committee at the request of then-Councilman New.  She continues as the current President of Cherry Creek North Neighborhood Association and leads efforts on zoning matters, including assisting in educating and informing neighbors on zoning matters and changes, following liquor and cabaret license applications, and, where appropriate, negotiating and documenting Good Neighbor Agreements to, among other things, address sound issues.  Lou and her husband, Phil Johnson, also a retired attorney, have lived at their current location for 26 years.
 
 
Vice President – Patti Marks
 
 
A native of the Arkansas Ozarks, Patti first moved to the Cheeseman Park area and fell in love with Denver in 1969. She returned to Arkansas for law school and to practice civil rights law in Little Rock for five years, but followed her heart back to Denver in 1981. So, she is a semi-native. She has always lived within 2-3 miles of Cherry Creek – the last 16 years in Cherry Creek North, but before that 23 years in Hilltop. She recently retired from long careers practicing law, family office management, and principal gift fundraising.  Patti is now thrilled to have more time to enjoy friends, community service, the arts, and her two dogs.  She is fortunate to also share time with her two daughters, Sarah and Jessica, and three grandchildren Maya 4, Zev 2, and Eli 6 mos. who live in Park Hill. Life is good. Along with assuming responsibilities of the Vice-President of CCNNA, she is also involved in the zoning committee issues.
 
 
Treasurer – Annette Woodward
 
 
I moved into the neighborhood in 1984 when there was only one restaurant, most of the homes were small bungalows and on a Friday night, a Saturday night, and Sunday there wasn’t a car in Cherry Creek North. Seeing the changes to the neighborhood as it has evolved and grown was what compelled me to become involved in neighborhood and community organizations over the past 25 years. Not to oppose the changes but to help shape them. I am the CCNNA treasurer, on the membership committee, and currently serve as a delegate to the Inter-Neighborhood Cooperation.  I also served on the Board of Capitol Hill United Neighborhoods and was its President for three years. I was appointed to the Neighborhood Board that worked with the University of Colorado as it transitioned its hospital and medical school to the Anschutz Campus. I have served on the Board of the Cherry Creek Steering Committee and the Botanical Garden’s Neighborhood Board. I was a practicing physical therapist before transitioning to the business community where I ran clinical trials for medical devices. Business opportunity brought me to Denver where I joined a group in starting a successful medical technology business. Since retiring; gardening, duplicate bridge, and drawing have become my passions. Most recently, I received my certificate in Botanical Illustration from the Denver Botanical Garden’s School of Botanical Illustration.
 
 
Secretary – Dale Rudolph
 
 
My husband Bill and I moved from Tennessee to Denver in 2014 and found a wonderful neighborhood to join when we purchased a home in the Cherry Creek North community. I retired from a very stimulating and fulfilling career in education including the development of a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education program for a Tennessee school system of 32,000 students. My STEM consulting job now provides me opportunities to assist schools in embracing STEM teaching and learning. When I retired from full-time employment, I searched for volunteer opportunities where I would remain an active learner while I worked with others. Bill and I participated in many CCNNA-sponsored events, and I became chairperson of the 13 CCNNA book groups. Many residents share their love of reading and build new relationships through these groups.  I also continue to serve as Block Captain for the Block Builders. We strive to identify a Block Builder leader for each block in the neighborhood who will help develop safe and engaging communities of each small segment of our neighborhood. The Sip and Savor committee has been a focus for me in late summer or early fall for five years. This event allows our neighborhood to raise money for those who need help while hosting a beautiful event with food and beverages provided by Cherry Creek North merchants. Cherry Creek Neighborhood Association filled a void in my life as a new resident and now gives me multiple opportunities to work with others for common goals and to make wonderful new friends.
 
 
BOARD MEMBERS AT LARGE:
 
Ingrid Glancy
 
 
In 1995 while working as a realtor I looked at an 1898 wooden Victorian with the original barn used as a garage.  It was the holidays- I turned to see the wreath at Neiman Marcus and thought —I could live here. Five years later I built my house. I have been on the Board for 12 years – it has always been a pleasure to work on the Board to ensure that Cherry Creek remains the vital and desirable community that it has become for our neighborhood. As a board member, I have been involved in membership, Dines Out, Spring Fling, and the nominating committee.
 
 
Kevin Landon
 
 
Retiring from an illustrious 40-year dental practice in Monterey, CA, Kevin and his wife Edie moved to Denver in 2015. One of their sons is a DPD Detective and Kevin is an active member of Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS) working with the missing and exploited persons unit, major crimes, and DPD Academy recruiting. You may have seen Kevin picking up odd bits of trash on his walks in CCN and he also volunteered to help remove trash in Civic Center Park this summer following the protests. “My wife Edie and I just love living in Cherry Creek North, and feel blessed to have the opportunity to live in such a wonderful place!” Kevin will be working on the zoning, membership, and safety committees.
 
 
Linda Barker
 
With decades involved in education as a teacher, leader, trainer, consultant, and policy manager, my transition to CCNNA’s association was seamless….relationships and community. Moving to Cherry Creek North (CCN) in 2003 brought a whole new perspective of being in a “neighborhood”. The CCN neighborhood has that sense of community–neighbors gathering in social events, voicing concerns on critical issues, participating in various clubs, walking our friendly streets…. we have it all. Since being on the board I have focused my goals on enhancing our communication and connections on social media and the website. Our social networking communication tools continue to focus on keeping our neighborhood connected and informed. Our voices do matter. CCNNA’s annual fundraiser, Sip and Savor, has been a labor of love as the committee connects with neighbors, businesses, and non-profits to give back to our community. Fulfilling an interest in learning more about the many sites and hidden treasures in and around Denver, I spearhead a committee, Exploring Denver, to offer our neighborhood tours to some of Denver’s interesting attractions. The opportunities in our association truly bring us together. Our two golden doodles keep my husband Paul and me walking our streets as they eagerly greet our neighbors.
 
Leslie New

Born in the middle of the country, and having resided on all three coasts (Georgia, California, and Texas), Leslie New fell in love with Colorado and with Cherry Creek North when she and her husband Wayne moved to Denver in 1999. Both Wayne and Leslie have always believed in public service along with their full-time careers and being involved in their community, especially with a neighborhood as special as CCN is a team effort. Leslie’s career was in advertising and public relations, so even before she was a Board Member, she helped CCNNA with the newsletter, membership, silent auctions at Spring Fling, General Resident Meetings, and much more during the eight years that Wayne was President of CCNNA. When he stepped down to run for and serve on Denver City Council in 2014, Leslie made it official and joined the Board. Serving CCNNA is a labor of love for Leslie. Among other duties, she serves as editor of the Newsletter.
 
Dick Cohen
 
 
I have been a Cherry Creek North resident for 16 years. Along with my wife, Terri, I started the Social Groups concept which has evolved into 50+ different Groups contributing to the strong neighborhood feeling in CCN. I was VP of CCNNA for 7 years. After a long career in manufacturing positions in the shoe and tool industries, I concluded my corporate role as Executive VP of Operations for American Tool Companies with operations on 5 continents.  After American Tool, I had my own independent Consulting Firm in Manufacturing Operations until 2019 when I retired. Currently, along with the social groups, I am involved in membership, finding key voices for our lecture series, and the nominating committee.
 
 
Kate Taucher
 
 
I’ve had the pleasure of living in CCN since 2002. I bring to the board my past volunteer experiences on various nonprofit boards over many years. I serve as the board’s Safety Chair, and continue to be involved with by-laws, Dines Out, and the nominating and membership committee.
 
 
Ernestine Gormsen

Cherry Creek North has been my home since 2012.  I moved from the Washington, DC area where I worked for a major communications company.  I coordinated with the Federal Government National Security entities to help develop, maintain and implement National Security policies involving the communications industry. My daughter, son-in-law, and two granddaughters live in Evergreen, CO. I have loved living in Cherry Creek North, enjoying the wonderful neighborhood and all that it has to offer. I want to give back in some way to ensure this unique community continues in a positive way, with a sense of community that involves all the residents. My goal is to increase membership and involvement so more people are committed to ensuring the quality of life our neighborhood provides.

My wife, Kathy, and I have lived in Cherry Creek North for 18 years. We love this neighborhood and are so pleased we can contribute our efforts to improve the neighborhood. We are both residential real estate agents with LIV Sotheby’s International Realty, and we actively work in the Cherry Creek area. Our website has been a key responsibility of mine as a board member.
