Mike Zlotnicki replaced Shane Townsend on OWAA’s Board of Directors, taking his spot in November.
Townsend replaced Phil Bloom when he became second vice president in summer 2015 at OWAA’s annual conference.Townsend planned to finish Bloom’s original board term slated to end in 2017, but he recently accepted the job of Foreign Agricultural Affairs Officer with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Foreign Agricultural Service which will take him overseas. Townsend starts the job in January in Washington D.C. training to work as a diplomat at a U.S. Embassy overseas.
Zlotnicki, who graduated with a degree in journalism from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, lives in Garner, North Carolina, with his wife and three daughters. When not hunting and fishing he works as associate editor at Wildlife in North Carolina magazine.
“I’m delighted that Mike Zlotnicki has joined OWAA’s board,” said Lisa Ballard, OWAA president. “He brings experience both as a newspaper reporter and as a member of the editorial staff of a state wildlife commission’s magazine. I regret losing Shane Townsend from our Board and wish him success at his new post, but also feel fortunate Mike will now join OWAA’s leadership.” ♦
