Updates to the board of Nature Camp Foundation have us saying a fond farewell and huge thank you to Chuck Story who stepped down this past year after serving on the NCF board for more than10 years as Treasurer and then as Finance Chair. Kevin Wheeler joined the NCF board this spring to fill Chuck’s position as Finance Chair. Kevin grew up in Lexington and was both a camper (‘93-’95) and a counselor (‘95-’97). He now lives in Washington, DC with his wife Natsuko and their three year old daughter, Sana. For his day job, Kevin is the Managing Director of Kaizen, an international development consulting firm. Kevin holds a BS in geology from Brown University, a PhD in petrology from Columbia University.
Thank you Chuck for your many years of service to the NCF and welcome Kevin! As part of our staggered term schedule, we always have at least one position to vote on each election year, and this year is no different. Up for election or re-election this year are the positions of Secretary, Treasurer, and At-Large member. Be on the lookout for an upcoming email that will have a description of the responsibilities for each position and short bios of our slate of candidates.
We are also very excited to announce our pilot electronic voting option this election year! Instructions for those who wish to vote electronically instead of mailing in a paper ballot will be included with this year’s ballot. You will also be able to indicate your preference for future voting in our electronic survey. Thank you in advance for your patience as we work out the best possible solution for our many generations of camp supporters.
– Chris Chamberlain, Vice President, NCF and head of the Nominating Committee
