Carl Bates

I was born and raised in Rochester, NY, where I graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology in 1993 and went to work for Continental Insurance. I was assigned to an office in Connecticut, where spent 4 years and got my MBA from the University of Hartford in 1997. I then decided to follow my family to Las Vegas in 1997 and landed a job with Nevada Power Company for the next 6 years before moving on to work for Clark County in the Elections department. I now work for the County Clerk as a manager overseeing the Marriage License Bureau for the "Wedding Capital of the World". My wife, Gail, and our two kids, Lauren and Aaron, joined Good Sam in 2009 and have been involved in many ministries over the years. I served on council for 4 years, 2 as President during the first phase of the school academy expansion, and I'm looking forward to the second phase buildout and construction of the sanctuary.
