April 20, 2016 @ 12pm EDT (noon)

Marstel-Day welcomed Sally Guynn, the co-founder and previous Executive Director of the prestigious National Conservation Leadership Institute (NCLI), to the firm’s Fredericksburg, Va office, for a presentation on “Conservation Leadership,” on Wednesday, April 20 2016. She discussed the challenges and opportunities, training involved, and level of effort required to be a conservation leader.

As its mission, the NCLI “contributes to the sustainability of North America’s natural resources by developing the conservation professionals who work hands on with some of our biggest conservation challenges”. The Institute has developed a unique curriculum that “challenges assumptions, piques critical thinking, fosters high-trust relationships, and strengthens confidence.”

From 1993 through 2013, Sally served as the Administrative Director and Senior Project Leader of the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies’ Management Assistance Team (MAT), providing agency management assistance and/or training to most of the state fish and wildlife agencies nationwide. Before joining the MAT, Sally headed up all the education programs for the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries. She is currently co-owner and a principal of The Guynn Group, an organization development consultancy and leadership training resource.
