New Executive Vice President Brings Environmental, Management Experience To NPCA

Washington, D.C. - The National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) today announced that Thomas D. Martin has joined the organization as Executive Vice President. Martin comes to NPCA from Earth Force, Inc., where he served as president and a member of the Board of Directors. He is currently Chair of the Board of the Natural Resources Council of America, a group of 85 nonprofits, including NPCA, which works to strengthen the effectiveness of the conservation community.

“Tom brings a wealth of leadership experience and conservation expertise to NPCA,” said President Tom Kiernan. “His understanding of how to strategically position an organization and successfully engage diverse audiences will be key to our efforts to preserve the national parks for future generations.”

Martin’s career includes more than 25 years of experience in environmental advocacy and protection. While leading Earth Force, the nation’s largest young people’s environmental education and advocacy group, Martin aggressively grew the organization’s fundraising and marketing capabilities, strategically refocused its environmental agenda and educational programming, and expanded operations to engage more than 30,000 youth annually.

“I am delighted to join NPCA - the recognized leader of national park advocacy with a dedicated staff and their exciting fact-based approach to protecting our park system,” Martin said.

Previously, Martin served as executive vice president and chief operating officer of the National Audubon Society, where he also directed the organization’s Everglades restoration campaign. He has also served as deputy director of policy, budget, and administration of Michigan’s Department of Natural Resources and was the founding director of Michigan’s Offices of the Great Lakes and Water Resources, where he developed and acted as the state’s chief advocate on behalf of Great Lakes environmental, transportation, and economic development policies. Martin holds a B.S. from American University and a J.D. from UCLA School of Law.

Martin’s duties at NPCA will include oversight of the organization’s national programs, communications, development, and membership outreach, and operational activities.
