Kim A. Parker

Executive Vice-President

Mr. Clark earned a Bachelors Degree in Biology and a Masters in Aquatic Ecology from the State University of New York at Buffalo after which he taught Invertebrate Zoology at that same institution. He then worked at a private consulting company where he developed and carried out investigations of the environmental impacts of nuclear power plants on the Great Lakes. 

Mr. Clark began his career with the Federal Government in 1978 with the Department of the Interior’s (DOI) offshore oil and gas exploration and development program as a marine biologist (Los Angeles California) and a fisheries biologist (Cape Cod Massachusetts). During more than 12 years with DOI investigating the environmental impacts of offshore oil and gas operations he also worked in the Gulf of Mexico, Alaska, and all 7 States on the Eastern Seaboard. 

To date Mr. Clark has worked an additional 26 years with the Department of Energy as an environmental protection specialist and physical scientist in the former Office of Environment Safety and Health and the Office of Environmental Management. The first 11 years were equally divided between staff and management positions rising to a position equivalent to a Deputy Assistant Secretary. 

For the past 15 years Mr. Clark has served as a Chief Steward, Vice President, and is now in his 6th consecutive 2-year term as Chapter 228 President. Now more than ever the Union is critical in the effort to push back against the myriad attempts to put our jobs, salaries, and benefits at risk.
