At DLC’s annual meeting on December 5th, held at the Runneymede Conservation Area, members unanimously endorsed the slate of Board Officers for 2022: President, Paul Freestone; Vice-President, Ed Harris; Secretary, Janet Anderson; and Treasurer, Tom Watson.

Former DLC President, Gordon Clark remains on the Board and will serve on both the Urban Forestry and Community Engagement committees.

Two new board members, Cindy McIntosh and Bonnie Newell, were elected with 3-year terms beginning January 2022.  DLC is delighted to have Bonnie and Cindy on the organization’s leadership team.

Cindy started her career in marketing with IBM, later focusing on office consulting. She developed her passion for the outdoors from growing up in the Pacific Northwest – hiking, biking, and skiing with her family. Upon retiring to Davidson in 2007, Cindy found a home for her other passion, gardening. An active member of the Davidson Garden Club, Cindy has served for five years as program chair and co-chaired the Davidson Horticultural Symposium for two years. She believes that improving and protecting the greenways and green spaces for all to enjoy is an important part of the Davidson community.

Bonnie is a 25-year resident of Davidson and a graduate of Clemson University with a degree in Ornamental Horticulture and Landscape Design. She currently works as managing partner with Berkley Group LLC and SVP of Real Estate Partnerships with Airwavz Solutions both in the wireless infrastructure industry enabling connectivity for mobile phones and devices to networks. Bonnie’s passion is in the connections and protection of special people and places. Davidson is top of the list of special places, but it goes on because if we protect land here in Davidson, we can influence protecting land elsewhere.

In the fall of 2021, Davidson College student, Ty Cryan joined the board and is focused on expanding and strengthening the connections among DLC and the Davidson College community, including students, student groups, and faculty
