Bill McAuley was born in Arcata and has spent most of his life in Humboldt County.
He is the managing partner of Demello, McAuley, McReynolds & Holland, LLP (a two-office CPA firm, with offices in Eureka and Fortuna).
McAuley became involved with the Foundation for several reasons. His father was the initial (and highly successful) football coach for College of the Redwoods, eventually becoming the college’s Athletic Director. Bill attended CR, playing football for two years, before transferring to a four-year school. CR has been a large part of his family’s life. He strongly believes in the mission of the College and the role the Foundation plays in education in our community.
