WTA Executive Director Resigns

Brian Windrope has resigned from his position as Washington Trails Association's executive director. Craig McKibben has stepped in as acting executive director while a search for a new ED gets underway.

There is a development at WTA that we want to share with you: Brian Windrope has resigned from his position as Washington Trails Association's executive director.

Craig McKibben is stepping in as acting executive director while the search for a new executive director for the organization gets underway. He serves on WTA's Board of Directors as the Vice President of Board Development and is the immediate past president of the organization. 

Brian joined the organization's staff in 2010. WTA and Brian came to a mutual understanding to go our own ways, and we wish Brian the absolute best in his future pursuits.

In the meantime, WTA isn't skipping a beat. We're in Olympia nearly every day to ensure that the legislature enacts the Discover Pass to prevent the closure of our state recreation lands. We've completed 10,000+ hours of trail maintenance since the beginning of the year, and we're prioritizing ten Signature Trail Work Projects that will receive extra attention from our volunteers this year. Our youth program is launching new spring break projects and leading more youth trail work parties than ever. And we're continuing our efforts to provide you great hiking information through our magazine and website.

If you have any concerns, please contact me at rob@wta.org.

Rob Shurtleff
President
WTA Board of Directors
