Craig Collins, a resident of Silver Lake for almost thirty years, was elected president of the SLRC at its November board meeting last week. He takes over leadership of the Conservancy from outgoing president Noah Stein.
Craig was active in conservation efforts in the Pacific Northwest prior to moving to Los Angeles, where he spearheaded efforts to create a National Scenic Area in the Columbia Gorge. He also worked to develop solar and conservation energy policies for the Western states.
Currently he creates comprehensive visual and written strategic communications for a variety of non-profit, conservation and community organizations.
Also elected to continue serving in their posts as incumbents were Cherie Miller, vice-president; Herb Gold, treasurer; and Leslie Edmonds, secretary.
