GSBA Welcomes New Board Members Kim Bogucki & Robin Larmer

GSBA welcomes Kim Bogucki and Robin Larmer to our Board of Directors!

Robin Larmer is the Principal of RLL Consulting & Advocacy, an organization that provides strategic, public policy and regulatory support to health care organizations and employers as they navigate the highly regulated and increasingly complex health care system.  In addition, she serves as corporate counsel to health plans and other health care organizations, and earlier in her career, she was an Assistant General Counsel for the Illinois Department of Human Services.  She has also worked as a health care and litigation attorney in private practice and a lobbyist. She received her BA and MS from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and her JD from the University of Minnesota Law School.

She discovered the GSBA 5 years ago, when she was new to Seattle and looking for a way to connect with and contribute to the LGBTA community.  Following her passion for education, she quickly became a volunteer with the GSBA Scholarship program.  She strongly believes that the financial and personal support we provide our youth today will pay countless dividends in the future.  She is proud to have been asked to serve on the Board of the GSBA, and looks forward to many more years of involvement with this tremendous organization.

Kim Bogucki has been a member of the Seattle Police force for over 24 years and currently serves as the department’s LGBTQ liaison officer.  Kim has implemented programs for youth, the incarcerated and the homeless, promoting these unique voices into driving positive change.  She has received national recognition for her efforts including The Doughnut Dialogues -- a national model that successfully brings together youth and police One of the most powerful projects Kim has created is the If Project, where women inmates answer the question, “If there was something someone could have said or done that would have changed the path that led you here, what would it have been?”  Over 500 inmates have participated in the If Project, leading Kim to produce a video, start an interactive website and prepare presentations to reach and educate both youth and adults. Kim was the recipient of the 2010 GSBA Community Leader of the Year Award.
