Chauncey Williams

Chauncey Williams

Chair

Chauncey joined the Secular Hub shortly after its founding (and his arrival to Denver) in 2013.  After volunteering at a Colorado Secular Conference, he was inspired to seek other opportunities to contribute, leading to him serving as the first organizer of the Secular Hub’s Community Service Committee (a precursor to the Secular Volunteer Corps).  Since, he has participated in and helped organize a number of secular community events.  Prior to arriving in Denver, Chauncey lived in Phoenix and Houston.  In both locations, he was an avid volunteer, supporting hunger and disaster relief efforts, road races, community gardening, and efforts to fight childhood obesity and type 2 diabetes. Chauncey has also taken on leadership positions in professional and community organizations.  For fun, Chauncey likes to hike and sample the local cuisine.

After reading the book “Good Without God,” it became clear to her that she is a Humanist. The book made references to the AHA. I sought out the organization online, and discovered that they would be holding a conference in Denver. I went and connected with Dave and Kimberly. I have been a member of the Secular Hub since May 2015, and I have been Treasurer since May 2015.
