Central Colorado Conservancy, an independent nonprofit organization, has elected Aaron Kindle as the new Board president.

The Conservancy Board President, Cindy Williams, will step down to focus on co-leading Envision Chaffee County, along with a continued partnership with Chaffee County and the Chaffee County Community Foundation.

Williams said “It has been my honor to serve as Board Chair for the Conservancy since 2016. The organization has flourished and will continue to do so with a fabulous board and staff. At the same time, I am humbled by the continued community engagement and impact of the Envision Movement. I look forward to focusing my energy on Co-Leading Envision, in partnership with County of Chaffee, and making our shared vision of the future a reality.”

Kindle will lead the Conservancy to their next chapter. He has been a current board member with experience as the Director of Sporting Advocacy at the National Wildlife Federation, and two decades of experience in conservation. He has a strong relationship with state and federal wildlife and land management and has lived in the west his entire life. He was born in Wyoming.

“I am very excited about the future of the Conservancy,” said Kindle. “We have a unique opportunity to help shape the future of Central Colorado in ways that conserve our agricultural heritage and our rural way of life. It’s so important we look to the future and think about what we want our area to be. The Conservancy is a key driver of that work, so I’m very happy to take on a greater role at the organization.”

Central Colorado Conservancy and Envision Chaffee County have long supported each other. Together they acted as a fiscal sponsor, had a shared involvement on the passage of ballot issue 1A, and overall left a positive mark on Chaffee County. This was a mutual decision by the two organizations.
