Local forest nonprofit seeks new leadership

The Friends of Dillon Ranger District (FDRD) is seeking an executive director to replace outgoing director Scott Fussell.

According to the organization’s board of directors, Fussell has succeeded in hiring an outstanding staff and overseeing more than 50 projects for the 2010 field season.

“We greatly appreciate Scott’s many contributions as a leader and advocate for FDRD over the past several years,” FDRD board chairman Bob Turner said. “Scott has opted to move on to face other challenges, and we are grateful for his tireless commitment to national forest lands in Summit County.”

Fussell said he has “thoroughly enjoyed” his five years with FDRD, including its volunteers, partners and the U.S. Forest Service staff.

“I am confident that I am departing a stable organization that will remain a vital part of the Summit County community for years to come,” Fussell said.

The FDRD Board plans to immediately initiate a hiring process and select a successor by Sept. 1. For more information on FDRD or its programs, visit http://www.FDRD.org, or call (970) 262-3449.
