In the May 2015 elections, OWAA members elected three members to the board of directors: Tom Keer (Massachusetts), Vicki Mountz (Ohio) and Paul Vang (Montana).
All three members will take their board seats on June 28 in conjunction with the 2015 OWAA annual conference in Knoxville, Tennessee.
Keer owns The Keer Group, a fullservice outdoor marketing and communications company. He is also an awardwinning, full-time freelance writer and columnist.
Mountz is a freelance writer and outdoor consultant living with husband Greg in Centerburg, Ohio. A 30-year member of OWAA, she has been a writer and seminar speaker, managing editor of two statewide and regional outdoor magazines, a fishing guide, pastpresident of Outdoor Writers of Ohio, executive editor of the state magazine Wild Ohio and the information and education chief for the Ohio Division of Wildlife.
Vang is a native of Minnesota and after graduating from St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota, he spent almost exactly one-third of the 20th century in a career with the Social Security Administration, with over 21 of those years in supervision and management.
After retiring from government service he reinvented himself as a freelance writer, landing a gig writing a weekly outdoors newspaper column. He’s expanded beyond that with bylines in a variety of publications, though at age 75, he’s happy to continue doing that weekly column. ♦
