Charles “Chuck” Milam
Chuck has served on the Aquarium’s Board of Directors as Treasurer since 2006. Since 1988, he and his wife Marilyn have lived in Manhattan Beach, a short beautiful walk to the Aquarium. They have two grown sons and three grandsons.
Chuck was an All-American High School and College Swimmer at Burbank High School and the University of Southern California, where he obtained his BA and MBA degrees. He still lap swims almost daily.
His career included over 20 years of administrative experience with city government (City of Long Beach) and public agencies (Central and West Basin Water Districts and LA County Metro Transportation Authority). In the past, he has served on the LA County Beach Commission, the Manhattan Beach Planning Commission and the Coordinating Council.
As an avid ocean swimmer, he has had many conversations with the Aquarium staff about swimming with dolphins, staying away from harbor seals when they are feeding and avoiding stepping on a stingray. He loves to share his marine experiences with the Aquarium’s visitors as part of protecting our wonderful ocean.
