Baker also serves the society as the Region 16 director. "Educating our workforce and customers is a responsibility that I take very serious. Each and every one of us as technicians must do our part to transfer the knowledge that we received from our mentors. Knowledge should not be used as power but as a means of helping someone realize their potential in our industry," he said.
