The DRI Foundation is pleased to welcome the following new members to its Board of Trustees, each serving a four-year term beginning January 1, 2024:

New Trustee Zimmerman, who is interested in water resource management, wildfire reduction & mitigation, and water quality, stated “Although DRI’s research and reputation of excellence is known worldwide, a focus for me is on making sure people living in the Truckee Meadows know about the high-quality research going on at DRI and how it benefits this community.  I was very excited to join the DRI Foundation Board to further support DRI’s work.”

These board members were formally approved at the December NSHE Board of Regents meeting and will serve alongside existing DRI Foundation Board Members.
