HMI is excited to announce our two newest board members, Delane Atcitty and Brian Wehlburg.
Delane lives at the Taos Pueblo in Taos, New Mexico. He is the Executive Director for the Indian Nations Conservation Alliance. He earned a M.S. in Ranch Management and Agribusiness from the King Ranch Institute for Ranch Management at Texas A&M University-Kingsville and a B.A.Sc. in Agribusiness/Agricultural Business Operations at Oklahoma Panhandle State University. He also serves on the board of directors for Navajo Agricultural Products Industry and is the former chair of the Native American Rangeland Advisory Committee for the Society for Range Management. Delane has been drawn to Holistic Management for a number of years, but took his first formal Holistic Management training through HMI’s Whole Farm/Ranch Land Management Training course in 2016 with Kirk Gadzia. Delane is excited about being on HMI’s board and brings his expertise with tribal lands to share with the organization.
Brian works in the Mid North Coast in New South Wales, Australia and is a full-time Holistic Management Educator through Inside Outside Management. He works with his partner Kerry and has three children. Brian was born in Zimbabwe and attended a week-long workshop run by Allan while trying to find answers for their wildlife, cattle and cropping business. Brian then attended HMI’s educator training at the Africa Center for Holistic Management in late 1990s. He then immigrated to Australia in 2000 started his training business with fellow educator Helen Lewis. He has delivered Holistic Management training across Australia and in New Zealand, including the nationally accredited Dilpoma in Holistic Management and now the Regenerative Ag degree run through Southern Cross University. Brian is excited to be on the HMI board and to be part of a like-minded team as HMI works on the cutting edge of new programs.
Welcome, Delane and Brian!
