Chip Whitacre

VI Minnesota

I believe myself to be an attentive and compassionate listener; a skill that has served me well as a manager, crisis-line volunteer and as a pastoral presence in my ministry as a Deacon. I have the analytical skills, life experience and maturity to sort through different interpretations of an event or series of events involving competing interests. I have been involved in many such situations as both a Regulatory Affairs professional and a volunteer arbitrator for the Better Business Bureau that have required me to work toward negotiated settlements or to provide an independent judgment. I believe that these skills and my experience with many roles in the Church will help me to be an effective contributor to the work of the Court of Review.
