SAM’s two longest serving board members have resigned. Jim Gorman and Jim Hilly served together for 22 years, longer than any SAM board members in the organization’s history. Gorman cited SAM’s transition “in a new direction” for his resignation.
At the same time, new board member Amos Eno also resigned. Amos founded and directs the Resources First Foundation, described as an organization “founded in 2000 to support and develop conservation programs to strengthen and sustain rural communities, economies and green businesses, and to support private sector conservation initiatives by supporting the multi-faceted conservation needs of private landowners.”
