Dear Fellow Explorers:
At yesterday’s Board Meeting, the Board elected me to serve as our Club’s 43rd president. It is with great humility that I accept this challenge.
The history and tradition of our Club is extraordinary, and the steps in which I now walk are paved with achievements and discoveries that have shaped our world.
We have been privileged for the past three years to have had the exemplary leadership of Alan Nichols, an accomplished explorer, writer, poet and most of all, a Club visionary. His determination to firmly establish The Explorers Club as the “Center of World Exploration” is a goal that I am determined to follow.
To achieve that goal, it is critical that we work together in a framework of transparency and cooperation and maintain an ongoing exchange of meaningful dialogue. We must encourage and promote creative thinking that will carry The Explorers Club forward and through the 21st Century.
To ensure our Club’s positive future and our goal of inclusiveness, I want you to always feel free to contact me with your imaginative ideas, any and all issues you feel are important, and any concerns you may have about our operations, administration, special programs and activities.
May I also extend my great appreciation to our Board of Directors for placing their trust in me to carry our Club forward with the same strengths, traditions and milestones that have marked our long history in exploration and discovery and have made us, clearly, the pillar of world exploration.
Yours in Exploration,
