What do Minnesota, Washington and Louisiana all have in common? Any guesses? Ok we’ll give you a hint, they all have Ruffed Grouse Society and American Woodcock Society (RGS/AWS) chapters and they all share the same regional director. Welcome, Elizabeth (Betsy) Dullum. Already months into her job as your newest Regional Director, Betsy is busy working with local chapter volunteers to create and host chapter events including fundraising, sportsman’s banquets, shoots, educational activities, habitat days and recruitment/youth events.
With perhaps the most unique chapter region in the organization, Dullum is prepared to work with our great members and chapters across the nation. “Each chapter is unique – but all the members seem to have a common enthusiasm and passion for habitat, the outdoors and the organization. It is refreshing to be a part of an organization that has such an engaged members,” said Dullum.
While Betsy distinguished herself professionally during a 30-year career in the utility industry, it was her passion for volunteering that led her to RGS/AWS. Prior to becoming a regional director, Betsy supported various chapters of RGS/AWS for over 20 years as a committee member and banquet volunteer.
“We welcome Betsy as a regional director and look forward to her future hard work and leadership for chapters, fundraising, events and furthering our mission to enhance healthy forest habitat and hunting opportunities for future generations,” said RGS/AWS President and CEO Ben Jones.
With extensive knowledge of the RGS/AWS banquet fundraising model, Dullum is excited to become more deeply involved in the organization and its mission. “Working with RGS/AWS provides me an opportunity to get involved in active conservation. We collectively support the conservation of land, water and resources for future generations to use. It is all for the greater good of the environment and that’s exciting,” she remarked.
