National Parks Conservation Association Announces that President Tom Kiernan Will Continue as Head of the Organization

Washington, D.C.— Alan Lacy, chairman of NPCA’s Board of Trustees, announced today that Tom Kiernan will be staying on as president of the National Parks Conservation Association. NPCA had announced in February that Tom Kiernan would be stepping down in June as president to take on the role of head of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation in Concord.

“Needless to say, the board is very pleased and supportive of Tom’s decision to stay. While NPCA would continue as a strong and effective organization under new leadership, we all believe that Tom is the best leader we could hope for,” said Lacy.

Kiernan said that he recently notified the Board of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation that he would not be joining them as their next president. He said this difficult decision followed several months of reflection.

“The New Hampshire Charitable Foundation is an outstanding organization that serves the breadth of communities and needs throughout that state, and I regret slowing the process in identifying Lew Feldstein’s successor, but I know that the Foundation’s strength and reputation will only grow in the coming years,” Kiernan said.

“I believe that my passion and service are better used here in Washington, D.C. now with the launch today by President Obama of the Administration’s America’s Great Outdoors Initiative” Kiernan said. “I believe that through working with the Administration on this initiative, NPCA now has an opportunity to incorporate new natural and historical sites in the park system, conserve national park lands on a landscape scale, make inroads on climate adaptation, and embrace the vision of the National Parks Second Century Commission.”  Kiernan said his core passion, life’s work, and career aspirations are fundamentally focused in these areas of conservation.
