JOSEPH SCHREINER | Secretary
I am currently a freelance German into English translator, specializing in engineering and technical texts. I am also a patent agent. I reside in the Portage Park neighborhood of Chicago. I have worked in information technology, statistical analysis and teaching in the corporate, academic and public sector domains for most of my life. I was the Chair of the National Organization of Gay and Lesbian Scientists and Technical Professionals, where, among other things, I managed several grants under 501c3 sponsorship and developed contacts with scientific professional societies.
As a DANK Haus board member, I hope to make specific contributions in the areas of grant procurement and web site development, and general contributions to building maintenance and program development. I have become a DANK Haus board member in order help the DANK Haus fulfill its missions to preserve German culture, to provide German language instruction, to be a community resource for the Chicago area, and to offer social and cultural activities for its members.
