Michael Chase, Communication Co-Chair

M F Chase Websites


When you need website work, you don’t need a geek or a friend…You need a Professional!  mfchase

With over 20 years of website and marketing experience, my goal is to make website technology and integrated marketing a positive asset for the small business at an affordable price. By using the 7 principles of GPS Marketing we can make your website a tool rather than a static billboard  or an expense item. Every business needs a website today. The real question is: Should you be working for your website or should it be working for you?

Michael is responsible for technical development of the RHBA website and the Social media postings as well as the RHBA update. The monthly email that lets us all know what is going on and when, usually originates with him but depends on the input from other board members and the membership at large.

Nora Mickelson, Membership Chair

Edward Jones


It's a joy to work with people at all stages of life; young couples just starting their careers and families, individuals at the peak of their earning years when they can see retirement on the horizon, small business owners who I can help not only with retirement plans for their companies but with their personal financial needs, or even retirees who are afraid of outliving their money.

When I'm not working with my clients, I am active in the Beaverton Chamber of Commerce and its ambassadors committee. I am also on the Heart and Vascular Advisory Board at Providence St. Vincent's Hospital and am a member of the Raleigh Hills Business Association. I enjoy the many live music and theater productions in the Portland area and love downhill skiing. A fun fact about me is that I was once a Peace Corps volunteer in Liberia, West Africa.

I look forward to working with the membership to make RHBA be all it can be!
