Kevin Rhoades resigns as executive director

Dear Members,
I’d like to thank you for the last 11 years, for allowing me to serve OWAA first as your newsletter editor, and subsequently as your executive director.
With no regrets I submit my resignation as executive director of OWAA.
I’ve informed OWAA’s Executive Committee that I’d like to wrap things up in 60 days. Should the board of directors want me to continue on a little longer, to ensure a smooth transition, I’d be happy to do so.
I have not applied for another position, nor been offered one. In fact, I don’t have much of my future figured out just yet, but my aspiration is to remain in the outdoor-communications field, at least in part, as many of our members’ work and lifestyles are an inspiration for me.
I can’t begin to express how meaningful it’s been to work alongside a variety of OWAA staff over the years – how rewarding it’s been to work with so many officers, directors, counsels and committee volunteers for such a long time.
I now count many of you as the very best of friends.
The last 11 years have been among the finest, most rewarding and memorable of my life. Andrea and I can’t thank you enough.
Warmest Regards,
Kevin Rhoades
OWAA Executive Director
