Salt Lake City, Utah: The Mule Deer Foundation (MDF) announced that Jeremy Anderson, the former volunteer state chair in Utah, began work today as the new regional director for that state. Anderson has been actively involved in MDF chapters and at the state level since 2008 when he began volunteering with the Utah County Chapter.
“I feel blessed and humbled to be chosen as the new Regional Director of Utah for this amazing organization. Starting as a volunteer and actively joining a group of people that wanted to make a change and not just talk about it has been a great reward,” said Anderson. “I am excited to take on such a prestigious role and surround myself with like-minded people in order to continue to grow MDF in the state of Utah and to work closely with the team at national headquarters.”
After starting as a volunteer committee member, Anderson served as the Utah County Chapter co-chair for three years and became the Utah state chair in 2012. During his time as state chair he also participated on the High Desert Leadership Team (HDLT) who is a group of individuals picked throughout the state to represent Mule Deer Foundation in their area. HDLT was developed to help facilitate successful fundraising events, represent MDF by attending RAC meetings, leading conservation projects, or any other MDF mission related tasks. Each opportunity allowed him to take on larger roles within MDF and he has thrived with the challenges of each opportunity.
“For eight years, I’ve worked very closely with Jeremy as he has learned more about our organization, the important work involved in conserving mule deer, and how we fundraise to finance these important conservation efforts,” said Mike Laughter, MDF’s director of field operations and the previous regional director for Utah. “I know I am placing the Utah chapters and all the great MDF volunteers in the state in extremely capable hands.
“Under Mike’s leadership, our state has made great strides in working for mule deer conservation,” Anderson continued. “Mike worked very hard to get Utah where it is and I plan to build from this solid foundation.”
