NCC Masthead

Jeffery Kirchner's additional information

 

I been an avid collector of Dept. 56 since the late 1980’s collecting from most of the core villages.  Seeing the detailed houses in a store window front for the holidays got me hooked.  My love for Christmas began as a small boy where my parents and Grand Parents always had their homes overly decorated for the holidays.  The Village buildings of the village underneath the Christmas tree at my Grandparents house with the trains my grandfather would display for the holidays.

I have been a member of several clubs through out the country and have served in several leadership positions. I am a member of the Village Landlords in Florida where I served at Programs Director. I was also a member of the Pyramid 56er’s in Tennessee where I served as Vice President and President. I currently live in NJ and serve as President of the Garden State Village Collectors.

I have attended numerous Village Gatherings, including Chicago, Minnesota, Arizona, San Antonio, San Diego, Florida and Connecticut and have volunteered at many of them. I have developed relationships with local and National Dept. 56 Representatives and have been to the Dept 56. Showrooms many times.

I would love to serve as the Region 2 NCC Representative because I feel I have the means to communicate and advance the mission of the NCC. I will be an advocate for the clubs I would represent and will make your voices known.  I am not afraid to voice my opinion and will offer solutions to resolve any issues that may arise.  I believe the way to move forward is to communicate, listen, and provide solutions to all tasks.
