Karen Scanlon, who has served as executive director for the Conservation Technology Information Center (CTIC) since 2006, has accepted a position at Dairy Management, Inc. to help support sustainability and social responsibility for the U.S. dairy industry.
“We’re sad to see her leave CTIC, but are delighted that Karen has found an exciting new role in the agricultural sustainability space,” said Alan Ayers of Bayer CropScience, CTIC board chair. “Karen has done a great job and has been very successful in moving this organization to new heights, which will ease the transition into new leadership.”
“CTIC has grown significantly in size and scope under Karen’s tenure, becoming a key source of insight on conservation systems, cover crops, nutrient management and economic sustainability for farmers,” Ayers added. “CTIC’s Conservation in Action Tours have set the bar for connecting conservation-oriented people with each other and with the innovative farming systems on the ground. Additionally, the organization has dramatically increased its collaborative projects to become even more effective in building local capacity and championing conservation farming.”
The board has appointed a search committee to find a leader up to the challenge of managing their dedicated staff, diverse projects and programs and vibrant organization. Prospective candidates can find more information at www.ctic.org or email the search committee at CITC@CTIC.org.
