PEC Welcomes New Leadership
to Steering Committee
At our national conference, Down-to-Earth Advocacy and Action, at Montreat Conference Center last week, Presbyterians for Earth Care introduced our new Steering Committee for 2015-2016, welcoming two new members. Sue Regier was voted in as the new Treasurer, replacing Sue Smith who served the organization for more than six years and David Sholin was voted to take Rick Owen’s place as Southwest Regional Representative.
Sue Regier has been a member of PEC since 2004 and has many years of experience managing finances. She has been on the finance committee at the Church of Reconciliation in Chapel Hill NC since 2010. She is experienced in tracking funds, writing grants and managing grants through her professional work managing land acquisition planning and implementation for the NC State Parks System. Her passion for faith-based justice is rooted in her family where her parents worked for social justice causes from a faith perspective. Sue lives in Durham NC.
David Sholin returns to the PEC Steering Committee having previously served beginning in 2003. While on the Steering Committee he was active on the Membership and Fundraising Committees. Prior to being on the Steering Committee, he served on the PEC Nominating Committee. David lives in Phoenix, AZ.
A few other changes have occurred on the Steering Committee, as well. Diane Waddell remains as our committed and hard-working Moderator, but Abby Mohaupt, previously our At-Large Representative, is the new Vice Moderator. Holly Hallman, former Vice Moderator, returned to her former position as Northwest Regional Representative. Kathleen Dove, Dana Eglinton, Nancy Fayer, and Paul Henschen remain in their positions as Regional Representatives.
Our gratitude and thanksgiving go to Curt Karns, Rick Owen, and Sue Smith who have served PEC so well during the past few years.
