After many years of truly inspirational dedication to Chevy Chase Estates Association, our longtime President, Brian Duran, will be stepping down from the CCEA board to dedicate himself more fully to his many other activities. Most of you know Brian as one of the great champions of hillside protection; over his many years as CCEA’s President, he has devoted countless hours to monitoring proposed developments in the Canyon and being a true advocate for the Hillside Ordinance which safeguards the quality of life of every Canyon resident. Some of you might also know that Brian is an I.T. expert who has worked at law firms and currently teaches computer classes. But what you might not know about Brian is that he is also an accomplished studio-level woodwind player. Having performed with many professional groups during his career, Brian is looking forward to devoting even more of his time to being a professional musician, music teacher and, most recently, author of a book on a revolutionary technique for teaching instrumental musicians.
The CCEA Board extends its most sincere thanks to Brian for being an amazing leader over these many years, and wishes him every success – and a world of musical enjoyment – as he focuses even more of his seemingly-limitless energy on his creative talents.
The CCEA board will now be led by co-Presidents James Ward and Graeme Whifler, both of whom are longtime Canyon residents. Graeme and James look forward to continuing the CCEA’s 81-year history of protecting the quality of life for all residents of Chevy Chase Canyon.
