We welcome Cristyn Bauer as our new Membership and Fulfillment Secretary. She has degrees from American Public University and Shepherd University. Her most recent work experience was with the West Virginia Water Research Institute and the Cacapon Institute, with other work in various environmental education and administrative positions less recently.
She lists as hobbies rafting, kayaking, rock climbing, trail running, snowboarding, mountain biking, dirt biking, hiking, and backpacking. She has worked as a raft guide where she “provided a fun and unforgettable experience down rapids of various difficulties.” She also has a certification in chainsaw and tree felling safety. Not that the job requires it and it may never come up but if it does we are ready.
The Membership and Fulfillment Secretary maintains our membership list—sending out renewal reminders, keeping up with address changes, etc. She will also be our own mini (very mini) Amazon, sending out the hats, t-shirts, books, etc. that we offer for sale.
At the same time, we are saying goodbye to Dave Saville who has been our most excellent Membership and Fulfillment Secretary for several years. We appreciate all the work he has put into the position and wish him well in the bazillion (approximation) other projects that he is always involved in.
