Our Board of Directors

Jerry Haas

BCA Executive Director & Board Co-Chair

Jerry is a retired United Methodist minister who has worked as a chaplain, pastor and denominational executive in multi-cultural and international contexts. He values the importance of non-profit organizations and loves BCA’s inclusive focus.

“I have lived in Arizona for twenty-five years but while I knew the challenge of the border, it was only through BCA that I began to hear what Mexicans are thinking and doing and how we can work together. For that I am very grateful.” – Jerry

Martin (Marty) Bronstein

BCA Board Co-Chair
Art Dealer/Collector

Marty’s career spanned over 30 years in Information Technology.  His last position was Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Office for Bank One’s (now known as JP Morgan Chase) Commercial Bank.  In previous roles he managed various aspects of the bank’s data centers, telecommunications and application development.  Marty holds an MBA in Computer Science and a BA in Political Science.

I became involved with BCA in 2014 after going on one of their Cross Border Tours.  I am interested in the activities on both sides of the border and wanted to get involved and help to educate people on the benefits of these cross border endeavors.

Diane Brooks

BCA Secretary

Diane is a retired Nurse Practitioner who lived and worked in San Diego for 23 years. She now lives in Tubac full-time where she volunteers for the Tubac Center for the Arts, Valley Assistance Services, the Tubac Historical Society and the Lowe House Project as well as BCA where she serves as Secretary.

I believe that peoples all over the world share common interests and feelings.  Since I can remember, I have wanted to be involved with other cultures, sharing those interests and feelings.  BCA allows me to be involved and, perhaps, bring about any needed change through that sharing.

Nancy Bennett

Board of Directors

Nancy Bennett is a native Arizonian, a retired librarian and a former Peace Corps Volunteer. After a 50 hiatus, during which she raised a family and pursued her career, Nancy moved back to Arizona, to Tubac, in 2012. She finds special pleasure in the blend of cultures here near the border and, also, in the natural beauty of this area.

I was drawn to BCA because of its focus on the well-being of the whole of the Ambos Nogales area and because of its many programs which are having a positive impact on the community.
