Richard "Dick" Doss is a native of Carlsbad.  He retired in 2008 after a 33-year career in banking and a lifetime of service.  Mr. Doss states, "Now is the right time for me to serve the Carlsbad Community.  We need people with the time and experience to be able to make a difference.  I can't think of any better way to give something back to a community that has been my home virtually my entire life".

 Doss has worked to protect children, promote good health and provide services for disadvantaged members of our community.  Among the organizations he has served are the Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), the United Way of South Eddy County, the Boy Scouts of America, the American Cancer Society, the American Heart Association and Carlsbad Girls Softball league.  He is a past president of the Downtown Lions, for which he received the prestigious Melvin Jones Award, and past president of the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce in 1991 where he was able to apply his experience in business and banking to such projects as the first Christmas on the Pecos.
