Bill R. McCracken EA, LTC  5065C

Bill R. McCracken has been in the accounting and tax field for over 35 years. He is one of those unique individuals who loves crunching numbers and began doing taxes as a side hobby! He served as business manager and controller for a variety of Oregon businesses before launching his own firm in 1988.  Bill's professional credentials include Enrolled Agent, Oregon Licensed Tax Consultant 5065C, Accredited Business Accountant, Accredited Tax Advisor and Certified Senior Advisor.

Bill is a proud member of the Rotary Club of Clackamas, Oregon.  He has presided as club president -- twice!  Bill has over 29 years of perfect attendance at Rotary meetings…and counting! Among his Rotary highlights was attending the International Convention in Glasgow, Scotland in 1997 and visiting several Scottish clubs.  Bill participated in Rotary's Centennial International Convention in Chicago, in June 2005 while serving as his club's centennial president.  He assisted a new club in West Linn get chartered in April 2006.  In 2009, he attended the 100th Rotary International Convention in Birmingham, England where he served as a volunteer Sargeant-at-Arms.  In 2010, Bill had the privilege of meeting John Kinney, Rotary International's president.  Scotsman Kinney was impressed with Bill's MacNaughten tarten kilt!

Through his Rotary Club, Bill purchased, and had placed in local schools, four Automatic External Defibrillators (AED), to assist people in quickly responding to potential heart attacks.  He also purchased one for the office and the Oregon Road Runners Club office.

Bill sponsors an endowment fund at Clackamas Community College in Oregon City.  The Bill McCracken and Pam Husband Endowment for Child Care provides childcare grants that enable single  parents to attend the college and improve both their and their children's lives.  Bill also funds a scholarship for business students at his alma mater, Boise State University in Idaho. 

Bill has competed in numerous long-distance runs. His ongoing goal is to complete a marathon or an ultramarathon in every US state and Washington, DC. 18 states are checked off, only 33 to go!  One of his favorite "short" runs is the Steens Rim Run, a 10K run held every August on Steens Mountain southeast of Burns. He boasts a perfect record of participating in each of the 31 events run at 7835 up to 9700 foot elevation!  Four times a year, Bill will  be found honoring the change of seasons, running the Mud Grand Prix in Forest Park, Portland.
