In addition to his business ventures, Pape, 52, has been active in state and community affairs for three decades.

He's a member of the Oregon Transportation Commission, which oversees the state Department of Transportation. Also, he's on the board of trustees of the Nature Conservancy of Oregon. In 1990, Pape chaired the fund-raising campaign of United Way of Lane County.
