Executive Director Craig M. Benjamin accepts position with National Wildlife Federation
The Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance announces the resignation of Executive Director Craig M. Benjamin, who has accepted a regional position with the National Wildlife Federation.
“While we’re disappointed to lose a leader of Craig’s caliber, we’re grateful for his hard work and leadership during the past four years and for leaving the Alliance stronger than ever,” said Alliance Board Chairman David Hardie. “We wish Craig the very best in his next conservation chapter.”
Under Benjamin’s leadership the Alliance has successfully achieved stability and growth while continuing to speak out and up for the valley’s wildlife, wild places and community character. He was also instrumental in the creation of the Conservation Leadership Institute and a civic engagement program that continue to engage thousands of local citizens in our civic process.
Benjamin will stay on with the Alliance through June as he transitions into his new role as Rocky Mountain Regional Representative with the National Wildlife Federation.
Alliance Operations Manager Dawn Webster will serve as Interim Executive Director while the Alliance Board of Directors conducts a national search for a new Executive Director.
