Conservancy promotes 3

The Monadnock Conservancy, a land trust for southwestern New Hampshire, announces the promotions of Anne McBride, Emily Hague and Rick Brackett. McBride is now the Conservancy’s land protection director, Hague has been promoted to stewardship director, and Brackett is land manager and GIS specialist.

“Effective immediately, I’ve upgraded Anne’s and Emily’s titles to better reflect their seniority, experience and value to the organization,” said Ryan Owens, Conservancy executive director. “Rick gains an opportunity for more responsibility in assuming full management for the growing portfolio of properties we own outright.”

McBride, previously a conservation project manager, works directly with landowners and their representatives, community members and partners to conserve land. She will continue in this role, but do so with more responsibility for the organization’s overall land protection program and, when another conservation project manager is hired, McBride will supervise staff with those responsibilities.

Hague oversees the Conservancy’s annual monitoring of more than 16,500 acres of conservation easements, manages enforcement actions if violations arise and develops educational programs to promote good land management throughout the region.

In her prior position as stewardship manager, she led the Conservancy in its efforts to meet national standards for accreditation and, in doing so, established internal procedures and record-keeping systems that will ensure the protection of all conservation lands in the organization’s portfolio forever.

The acreage of land under the Conservancy’s complete ownership has nearly quadrupled in recent years, which necessitated Brackett’s new focus as land manager; formerly he was assistant to Hague. He will now oversee the monitoring, management, habitat improvements and public access for lands owned outright. Brackett also continues in his overall role as manager of the organization’s GIS and related mapping technologies.
