Presidents Recognition Dinner: Lorie Karnath

On January 31st, we will hold the first Presidents Recognition Dinner honoring Lorie Karnath and her three years of service from 2009 to 2012. While serving as President, Lorie dedicated herself to the preservation of our historic headquarters and concentrated her efforts orchestrating, managing and raising the funds necessary to help restore the Lowell Thomas Building - an effort that made a vitally important contribution to the well-being and continued use of our iconic and historic headquarters. Additionally, she was instrumental in the creation of the "Long-term Fund" which assisted with further restoration of the building.

Lorie is an avid explorer, having been elected a Fellow of both the Royal Geographical Society and Royal Canadian Geographical Society, and was a founding member of the RGS Hong Kong. She’s been to the North and South Poles, remote regions in Burma and China, Borneo, the Silk Road and many other places around the globe. Outside of the Club, Lorie is a former investment banker, education advocate and author, and has also concentrated her efforts on developing schools in China and Burma.

Please join us January 31 as we recognize Lorie's accomplishments and present her with her Explorers Club Silver Presidential Bowl.
