Rebecca Triche, Executive Director
The Louisiana Wildlife Federation (LWF) has hired Rebecca Triche, a veteran nonprofit and conservation leader, as its new Executive Director. She will be formally introduced to the LWF membership at their upcoming 73rd Annual Convention to be held at the Clarion Inn & Suites Convention Center March 9, 10 and 11 in Covington, LA.
Prior to joining LWF, Triche was a consultant working with nonprofit organizations in capacity building and project management that focused on energy efficiency, environmental education and volunteer programming. She previously worked as senior coordinator with National Wildlife Federation, program associate with Louisiana Disaster Recovery Foundation (now Louisiana Foundation), and deputy director with the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana. Her education includes a bachelor of mass communication from LSU and a master of public administration from The George Washington University.
According to LWF President Ken Dancak, “Rebecca’s leadership abilities and organizational skills will help LWF expand its programming and outreach on conservation issues. She has a great track record of building partnerships and developing new projects and a strong commitment to LWF’s mission to conserve our natural resources and your right to enjoy them.”
LWF did not have to look far in their search for a new executive director as Triche is a long time member of the East Ascension Sportsman’s League, a current member of the LWF board of directors, a former member of the LWF executive committee and has been chairing LWF’s Conservation Awards Committee for the past two years.
The Louisiana Wildlife Federation is a statewide conservation education and advocacy organization with more than 10,000 members and 28 affiliate groups. Established in 1940, it is affiliated with the National Wildlife Federation and represents a broad constituency of conservationists including hunters, fishers, campers, birders, boaters, and other outdoor enthusiasts.
