Three board members are up for re-election
The Madison Audubon board consists of 12 members, three of whom are currently up for reelection. Those members include Roger Packard, president, Marcia MacKenzie, vice president, and Pat Eagan, member-at-large.
The bylaws allow for members to nominate additional candidates. You may do so by submitting a brief statement from each
nominee signed by at least 25 Madison Audubon members as of Nov. 1, 2017. Member nominations are due to the Madison Audubon office no later than Dec. 8, 2017.
Watch for ballots to appear in the spring newsletter, due out in February, and please vote!
ROGER PACKARD - PRESIDENT
Recently retired from a position in administration at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Roger spends as much time as possible outside restoring the ecological integrity of the land at Faville Grove, where he and his partner, David Musolf, have worked with Madison Audubon since 1998 to make the organization's second sanctuary the gem that it is today. As board president since 2012, Roger has helped to build Madison Audubon’s capacity and effectiveness in all aspects of its mission: environmental education, advocacy and habitat protection.
MARCIA MACKENZIE - VICE PRESIDENT
Marcia MacKenzie is currently the Dane County Corporation Counsel. She has been active with Madison Audubon since 2007, serving on the Education and Development committees and as vice president of the board of directors. Marcia comes from a “conservation family,” where she was raised to believe that individuals must each have a personal stake in conservation. She urges others to take a stake by volunteering with Madison Audubon.
PATRICK EAGAN - MEMBER-AT-LARGE
Patrick is a grandfather, photographer and emeritus professor at UW-Madison, where he taught classes on both sustainability and engineering. His last two positions at UW were as an educational fellow in UW-Madison’s Office of Sustainability and as chair of the Environment and Resources degree program in the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies. His wife, Lloyd, is retired from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and is also active in environmental endeavors.
