Over the past few weeks, the staff of the Pennsylvania Land Trust Association has reorganized, including the promotion of two staff members to newly created positions.

Carol Grayshaw has been promoted from office administrator to the newly created position of education and office coordinator, where she will coordinate the annual Pennsylvania Land Conservation Conference, biennial Pennsylvania Greenways and Trails Summit, and other educational offerings while continuing to make the PALTA office run smoothly and leveraging her extensive art background to spearhead many of PALTA’s graphic design projects.

Nate Lotze has been promoted from communications specialist to the newly created position of director of communications, where he will lead PALTA’s communications efforts across a range of platforms, create ConservationTools.org resources, and find innovative ways to better tell the story of conservation. He will also take on a larger role in developing programming for the Pennsylvania Land Conservation Conference and Pennsylvania Greenways and Trails Summit.
