MALT Membership Meets 9:00 AM Virtually on Feb. 15 to Meet New Executive Director

     The Montana Association of Land Trusts membership will meet via Zoom at 9:00 AM on Tuesday, Feb. 15, to formally meet the incoming MALT executive director. 

     Current MALT executive director Glenn Marx is transitioning into retirement starting in March, and the new executive director will transition into the position through late May, when the individual will begin full-time MALT duties. 

     An announcement on the new MALT ED will be distributed immediately after the Feb. 15 Zoom meeting. 

     Contact Glenn with questions. 

     The only other item on the MALT Feb. 15 meeting agenda is approval of the MALT 2023 Farm Bill Policy Recommendations. A new draft of that proposed policy document was sent to MALT members on Friday, Feb.10. 

     During the MALT ED transition (March through late May) the MALT Monday Update newsletter will be temporarily suspended, and the new executive director and MALT board and membership will later determine how best to address internal MALT communications.
