Lisa J Graumlich

AGU member since 1992. Dean, College of the Environment, University of Washington, Seattle, Wash.

Volunteer experience: A key role of an advisory board is to assess the wisdom of changing course to seize opportunities. I am on the Board of Directors of Forterra, one of the nation’s largest land trusts. Recently, we redirected Forterra’s strategic plan to address rapid urban development in the Pacific Northwest. As a board member, I am particularly attuned to evaluating progress towards achieving the vision, particularly in the context of new opportunities, partnerships, and business models.
