    Chairperson

    Chris Zull
    My history with the City dates to September 2003 when I joined the Traffic Safety Department as a Traffic Engineer.  Since then, I moved into the Traffic System Engineer position and in 2011 was named Traffic Safety Manager.

    I have been actively involved with the APAGR as representative since 2009, served as Vice-Chairperson since 2011, and elected Chairperson in 2013. My APAGR service includes Chair of the Pension Benefits Committee and the Classification Committee; Vice-Chair of the Main Unit Grievance Committee;  Vice-Chair of the Main Unit Contract Negotiation and member of the 61st District Court Contract Negotiations; Vice-Chair of the Health Benefits Committee; and member of the Newsletter and Technology and Web Page Committees.
    I hold a Bachelor’s and a Master’s Degree from Michigan State University in Civil Engineering and  currently serve on the ITS Michian and West Michgian Trails and Greenways Boards.

    Vice Chairperson

    Jeff McCaul
    Starting with the City in 1998 as a field inspector for City road construction projects, I became a member of APAGR in 2000 as Construction Inspection Supervisor (Engineering), promoted to the Water Department as Hydraulic Engineer, and returned to Engineering as Assistant City Engineer overseeing construction projects, utility work in the public right-of-way, and the Sidewalk Division.
    The way of doing business at the City has drastically changed during the last decade.My reasons to continue working on our members’ behalf remain the same…to work with the best interests or our membership in mind, to maintain fair benefit levels, and to keep wages competitive.  During this current tough economic period that the City and all of us are facing, I remain committed to serving to the best of my ability.
          In addition to participating on the Contract Negotiation Committee, I am also a member of the Charter and By-Laws, Main Unit Grievance, and Newsletter Committees.

    Secretary

    Breese Stam
    I have been with the City Engineering Department since 1995 as a Project Design Engineer and now as a Senior Project Engineer in connection with many street and public utility projects. 
    In 2006, I was elected to the position of Secretary of the APAGR and continue to serve in that capacity today in addition to participating in a number of Committees including the Medicare Supplement Fund, the Main Unit Contract Negotiation Committee, the annual Golf Outing, Newsletter ,and Technology and Web Page Committees. 
    I also am current Chair of the Good and Welfare Committee which I believe is important since it provides a way to reach out to our members during life changing personal events like births, deaths and major illnesses and to recognize our members with Service Awards for their years of service to the City.

    I have been with the City since 2000 and became an APAGR member in April 2008 when I was promoted to the position of  Administrative Analyst I working in the Parks and Recreation Department.

    During the last decade-plus working for the City, I have participated in many activities that have helped develop leadership skills and set me on a path where I chose to become actively involved in helping to meet the goals of and working for the benefit of all members in our unit.

Planted my roots in West Michigan soil in 2000 and have been in love with this area ever since. I am a member of Sigma Beta Delta and continue to foster increased participation in the fields of math and science for youths.  I am an active volunteer and am currently the Chair for the Alliance for Vibrancy for Downtown Grand Rapids, Inc. and the Treasurer for the Bielsko-Biala Poland Sister city board.

    I have been married for 12 years to my husband Sean and we have two four-legged children named Sir Walter and Prince Simon. I am an athletic person and enjoy playing hockey, golfing, snowboarding, and hiking. My most recent accomplishment was summiting Mt. Whitney in Lone Pine California, over 14,504 feet above sea level! It was an amazing feeling and a true test of physical and mental strength.
