Power Named Chair of CSUN Foundation

Twenty-Nine-Member Board Oversees Management of Donations to University

James David Power III-founder, chairman and CEO of Westlake Village-based J.D. Power and Associates-has been elected chairman of Cal State Northridge's Foundation Board of Directors. Power was elected at the foundation's annual meeting in July.

"We're thrilled that David Power agreed to take on the volunteer leadership of the board," said Judy C. Knudson, CSUN's vice president for university advancement. "We choose to think of it as the university getting the J.D. Power seal of approval."

J. D. Power and Associates is an international marketing information firm recognized by many industries as the "voice of the customer." For more than three decades, the company has been listening to consumers, analyzing their perspectives, and refining study methodologies to offer the most advanced customer satisfaction studies, analyses and training initiatives.

Debra K. Papageorge, vice president and senior trust consultant for Morgan Stanley Trust and a CSUN alumna, was elected vice chair of the foundation.

Made up of volunteers from the community, the foundation is a nonprofit university auxiliary that receives and oversees the management of private donations to the university. Among its roles is raising money for the enhancement and support of programs that normally would not be funded by the state.
