Paul has shed his brilliance in advertising agencies from London to Missoula.


He started his career at England’s famed Saatchi & Saatchi, and then puddle-jumped
to several top agencies in Chicago, working on Miller beer and First Chicago Bank,
among other accounts. He spent several years in Missoula, then swung back East, to
Keiler & Company, where he helped turn the industrial tool segment of Stanley into
the company’s most profitable division. His next stop was at the boutique agency
Forge, near Boston. Happily, Paul returned to Missoula and now brings his
inspiration to creating and designing museum displays.

Bert Chessin is a Missoula native. Professionally, he worked as an environmental health scientist and today serves on the Air Quality Advisory Committee for Missoula County.



He has been active for decades in Jewish communities in North Carolina and, now, Missoula, serving on boards of directors and in musical ensembles. The history of our local Jewish community has been an interest since returning to Missoula 13 years ago.

Go-Green Initiative


Looking back at 2019, we are proud of the work we have done to keep single-use plastics out of our waste stream, and out of our meetings. Each member will be given an HVN-branded SiliPint glass to keep and bring to future events. With this change, HVN is moving to a BYO-HVN Silipint model. In the event you forget your SiliPint at future meetings, you may purchase another cup for $10. Thank you, and see you soon!

RSVP’s are appreciated
