GVLT Board Member Named to Terrafirma Members Committee

     Meghann McKenna, a Gallatin Valley Land Trust board member, has been named to the Terrafirma Members Committee as a representative from the Mountains and Plains Region. Terrafirma was created in 2011 (with significant help from Montanans like Andy Dana and Paul Sihler) to help land trusts defend their conserved lands from legal challenge. Terrafirma is owned by its members to insure the costs of upholding conservation easements and fee lands held for conservation purposes when they have been violated or are under legal attack, and to provide information on risk management to those land trusts.

     Meghann has experience in insurance, estate planning and financial services, and she works in partnership with her father John and other associate agents at McKenna Financial.

     Congratulations, and thank you, Meghann.
