Dear Friends and Members of New Mexico Wilderness Alliance,

I am pleased to let you know that by vote of the members, Bob Taffanelli and David Soules have
been elected to new three-year terms on our board.They are both from Las Cruces and have been
active for a long time in promoting the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument.

Following the election outcome, the Board of Directors proceeded to appoint Nancy Morton and Joe
Alcock to three-year terms. Both are residents of Albuquerque and have been active board members.

The Board also appointed Claire Cote to a one-year term. Claire resides near Questa in Northern
New Mexico and has served very ably on the Board.

We are very pleased to have these strong members continue on our board, and extend our thanks
to the many of you who participated in the process.

Yours truly,

Ken Cole
