Tennessee Wildlife Federation adds board, advisory members
For nearly 70 years, the non-profit Tennessee Wildlife Federation (TWF) has worked to enhance the state’s wildlife and habitat, to advocate on public policy matters affecting natural resources, and to create the next generation of sportsmen and women through innovative outdoor youth programs.
During TWF’s Fall Board meeting the organization added three respected leaders in business and conservation to its Board of Directors and Advisory Board, respectively. Albert Menefee of Brentwood, and William F. “Ric” Wolbrecht IV of Memphis were elected to serve three-year terms, and Colin Reed of Nashville was elected to the Advisory Board.
Menefee is president of Beech Creek Farm & Land Management, LLC, in Franklin. His 2,000-acre farm in Cornersville is a model for effective land enhancement for wildlife,
Wolbrecht is a financial advisor and a vice president in the Private Client Group at Raymond James in Memphis.
Reed is president, CEO and chairman of the Board of Ryman Hospitality Properties (formerly Gaylord Entertainment Company).
“Much of our success is attributable to the efforts of a strong Board of Directors and Advisory Board – people who have been willing to give of their time and talents to ensure that the Federation achieves its mission on behalf of Tennesseans,” said Mike Butler, CEO of the Tennessee Wildlife Federation. “These three have a passion for wildlife and conservation, and we’re looking forward to engaging them in our strategic growth and development.”
Since 1946, the Tennessee Wildlife Federation has served as a statewide champion for our Great Outdoors. Visit www.tnwf.org to learn more.
