A farewell from NASF Communications Director Whitney Forman-Cook: What an awesome ride the last five years have been! I have thoroughly enjoyed working on behalf of state foresters and their staffs, and will always appreciate the opportunities NASF's members and partners have given me over my tenure.

My last day will be November 18th. I’ll join the Society of American Foresters’ team as their Chief Operations Officer (COO) on November 28th. As of Monday evening, NASF is actively recruiting for my replacement. If you or someone you know is interested in the position, please check out the job description linked here and below in the "Job Board" section of today's newsletter. Until the next Communications Director is hired, NASF's social channels and publications (including this weekly newsletter!) will be in great hands with Emilie Austin, NASF's communications coordinator. If you have submissions for our Job Board, please write to nasf@stateforesters.org, and if you have questions related to NASF policy positions, please reach out to Robyn Whitney, NASF's policy director.
 
What this association is and represents is truly something special. I will miss it, its capable members, and its many partners very much! Please keep in touch. I'll look forward to our paths crossing in the future.
