    President – David R. Blumberg

    Photo of David BlumbergDavid R. Blumberg has spent a lifetime making positive contributions to public service. A lifelong resident of Baltimore, David received his BA from Loyala College and his Masters of Library Science from the University of Maryland. He went on to work for the Enoch Pratt Free Library from 1974 to 2003, including having served as a member of the Enoch Pratt’s Board of Governors.

    David has volunteered to serve in a number of different community service and charitable organizations. He has served as President of both the Roland Park Civic League and Roland Park Library Initiative, and volunteered with the North Baltimore Neighborhood Coalition, Northern District Police Community Council, the Baltimore Junior Association of Commerce and Santa Clause Anonymous.

    David was appointed to the Maryland Parole Commission by Governor Robert Ehrlich in 2003. He became Chair of the Maryland Parole Commission in 2004 and has served in this capacity since.

    David became active with APAI not long after his appointment to the Maryland Parole Commission. He participated in various training activities and served on APAI’s Professional Development Committee for many years. David has served on the APAI Executive Committee for the past seven years as both APAI Treasurer and Vice-President and has made numerous contributions to improve the goals and outcomes of APAI.

    Throughout his life, David has selflessly volunteered his spare time to make his community a better place and improve the efforts of the charitable organizations he has been involved in.

    With term limits placing Cynthia Mausser into a past-president status, APAI needs another strong leader to continue forging ahead to keep APAI a respected voice in the field of parole. David’s passion for “making things better” will benefit APAI and all of its members.

    Treasurer – Joe Pacholski

    Photo of Joe PacholskiMr. Pacholski, Deputy Administrator at the U S Parole Commission, also serves as Executive Reviewer and training official for the Examiner staff. After over 18 years with U S Parole, Mr. Pacholski has extensive knowledge and training in parole hearings, risk assessment, guideline usage, and local ( D C Parole) as well as Federal regulations.

    "Joe" has served as APAI treasurer for a full term and makes himself available for all conference calls and required APAI Board meetings, as well as attending every APAI annual conference; he especially enjoys interacting with APAI members and helps new appointees learn about Parole Law and the demands of our unique roll in the criminal justice system.

    His past career included grievance hearings and employment with Congressional staff. Married, and the father of a college senior daughter and high school aged son, Joe resides in Collegeville, Pennsylvania but travels extensively for the U S Parole Commission.

    After working closely with Joe Pacholski ifor 13 years in my roll as a Parole Commissioner and knowing his level of responsibility to his work, and his commitment to APAI, I enthusiastically nominate Mr Pacholski for treasurer for a second consecutive term.
