Members of the ELAW US Board of Directors at the Fall 2009 meeting

Twice a year, an amazing group of people gathers in Eugene.  The ELAW Board of Directors meets every October and April to hear about what is happening in the ELAW network, give advice about how we can better meet the challenges of promoting environmental justice around the world and, as importantly, share a few meals (and a few laughs) as they connect and reconnect with their colleagues.

At Saturday’s meeting we welcomed new director Elaine Chang, who is the Strategic Advisor at the World Affairs Council in Seattle.  Elaine brings a wealth of experience creating educational programs and public education events related to global issues affecting the developing world.  We are thrilled to have her join us!

We also said good bye and thank you to Director Amy Solomon who has served on the ELAW Board since 2003.  Amy has provided great advice, wonderful connections and an amazing energy during her tenure on the Board.  We wish her the very best in her future adventures.

Rita Radostitz,  Director of Philanthropy
