New NSS WNS Liaison

Postby bigredfoote » Dec 5, 2013 6:33 pm

At the fall NSS BOG meeting, Jennifer Foote from New Mexico was confirmed as the new NSS WNS Liaison. Peter Youngbaer has served fabulously in this role over the last 6 years, and has promised to continue to assist on the NSS WNS committee. Peter is irreplaceable, but I will do the best I can to serve the NSS in this position.

I plan to continue our goals of supporting WNS research, educating cavers and the public, protecting cave resources, and strengthening the NSS and protecting caver rights.

I would love to have contacts in every state/region so we can communicate caver needs to NSS management and government agencies, and so I can communicate WNS information quickly back to local cavers in a more active manner.

Please contact me using the same email,

Jen, thank you so much! I'll be in touch to help as "eyes and ears" in the East. Any chance we'll see you at NEBWG Albany?
