The Southern Wildland-Urban Interface Council (SWUIC) is pleased to invite nominations for the third annual Changing Roles Leadership Award. The Changing Roles Professional Development Program helps resource professionals learn and apply knowledge and skills to meet evolving needs in the complex context of the wildland-urban interface. As the landscape and our clientele change in urbanizing areas, so does the role of natural resource management agencies. The Changing Roles Leadership Award recognizes and honors a person embracing this change and demonstrating leadership in the Changing Roles Program ideals. Please consider nominating individuals who are making significant contributions to the following:
· Interface forest management (ie. small parcels)
· Land-use decision making processes
· Effective communication with interface residents and community leaders
· Emerging resource management issues in the interface such as ecosystem services, succession planning, climate change, or environmental justice.
This award will be presented by the SWUIC at the Southern Group of State Foresters meeting in Savannah, Georgia.
