Mark Mielke - Candidate


Mark Mielke is an active long-term NCF member who has been a visible part of NCF's online community since 1994. He volunteered for NCF in various capacities since 1994 as a software developer, technical advisor, and for the last 9 years, as a member of NCF's Board of Directors.

He is employed by Nortel as a software architect and has a wife from Australia, and two kids.

Mark brings many years of knowledge as a user and member of NCF, as well as the experience of being an NCF board member for six years.

Mark thinks Community-based, member-controlled Internet access and services, as well as access to technologies that may be unavailable to the general public through traditional channels are important. He believes that the NCF helps make the National Capital region a better place to live by ensuring that we, as a community, remain on the leading edge of technology.
