Queneau elected to OWAA executive committee

MISSOULA, Mont. – The OWAA Board of Directors on Dec. 12 elected Paul Queneau of Missoula, Mont., to serve as secretary.

Queneau grew up hunting, fishing and backpacking in Colorado. He is conservation editor for Bugle, the official magazine of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. Queneau served a recent term on the board and was voted by his fellows as Outstanding Board Member at OWAA’s annual conference this past September in Lake Placid, N.Y.

This election fills a post left open by the resignation as secretary of Mark Herwig, who encountered conflicts between upcoming board meeting dates and travel scheduled for his job.

“I think OWAA does a lot for people in our field of work,” Queneau said. “I enjoyed my previous time on the board. I’m happy to take a more intensive role.”

OWAA is The Voice of the Outdoors®. The Outdoor Writers Association of America is the oldest and largest association of professional outdoor communicators in the United States. It was organized in 1927 by members of the Izaak Walton League of America and includes professional communicators dedicated to sharing the outdoor experience. OWAA’s professionals include writers, photographers, outdoors radio- and television-show hosts, book authors, videographers, lecturers and artists. The association is headquartered in Missoula, Mont.
