GMNC restructuring to leap into a sustainable future!
Ever since its inception in 1990, the Grand Mesa Nordic Council has been a volunteer run 501c3 nonprofit organization. Our volunteers will always be integral to the mission and success of the GMNC. We will continue to have a volunteer Board of Directors.
The Board of Directors has decided to hire an Executive Director to help professionally run the organization. This is a reasoned and overdue response to the growth of the organization. The popularity and increased growth of our trail system, an increase in available resources, the complexity of managing this popular West Slope cross-country ski destination, and much needed development and management of GMNC programs, all require more day-to-day management.
We intend to hire a skillful and enthusiastic individual to take on many of the volunteer board’s day-to-day responsibilities. This will allow the volunteer board to support the Executive Director’s efforts, provide oversight, develop and work towards the long-term vision of the GMNC, and most importantly accomplish the GMNC’s mission of promoting fun and safe cross country skiing experiences on Grand Mesa for skiers of all ages and abilities.

This exciting decision was made at the Board’s May Annual Meeting which also included Board and Officer elections. Please welcome Lynea Schultz-Ela and Dan Tille who were elected to be the new Co-Chairs of the Board. We thank them profusely for taking on this position.
Doubly profusely with a string of exclamation points, we thank Joe Ramey for his tenure as President for the past two very busy years, for keeping us organized and moving forward!
