Springtime is marked by transition and growth, and it’s no different for our board of directors.
Craig Partridge, Jane Chavey, and Barb Morson all finished their board terms this spring. A lot was accomplished during their tenure—from opening preserves for recreation to updating strategic plans to growing our operating reserves. We’re grateful for their leadership and are delighted that they will continue to share their talents with Capitol Land Trust through participation on committees and special projects.
With their departure, we also had some officer roles to fill. Bill Robinson has replaced Craig Partridge as our board president, and Andrea Martin is taking on the role of secretary from Barb Morson. Sandy Kaiser and Skip McGinty will remain our vice president and treasurer, respectively. This executive committee will lead the board’s efforts as we welcome our new board members Court Stanley, Sarah Moorehead, and Jim Sherrill.
“These new board members bring deep connections to our local communities, particularly the outdoor recreation and working lands communities,” said Jason Callahan, CLT’s Board Recruitment and Training chair. “They bring to CLT the important perspectives of both Lewis County and rural Thurston County. Those voices will be an incredible asset in guiding our work.”
