Chris Cowan Elected President
At the January officer election meeting, Chris Cowan was elected President of the Rubicon Trail Foundation.
Chris has been a long-time member of the board of directors. Originally elected in 2010, she was asked to join the board specifically to replace the vacant Secretary position. Immediately thrown into business, Chris very quickly had to vote on the purchase of 317 acres from Mark Smith. Chris stated, “I cried. I thought how in the world are we going to pay for this?” But the incredible donors came through at event after event, leading to the final payment made in 2016.
Chris is very visible several times a year, as she has been the chairperson and co-chairperson of Black Tie & Boots for many years. In addition, she has run Kids Club at Jeep Jamboree and Wine Tasting at Jeepers Jamboree.
Chris will be the President of the Foundation until 2023.
