Brian MealorBrian A. Mealor - President
In looking back over my relationship with the SRM, I have had the good fortune of being involved at many different levels: student, land manager, producer and academic. Each of these situations comes with its own set of opportunities and challenges, and I found that SRM had something positive to offer at each stage. Because of the benefit I have received from SRM through my career thus far, and because I see the great potential for SRM to continue enhancing and improving skills and opportunities for current and future rangeland professionals, I would be honored to serve as Wyoming Section President.

I have been working for the University of Wyoming as a Range Extension Specialist for six years. One of the greatest pleasures in my position is the opportunity to work with private landowners and managers, agency representatives and researchers on a wide variety of rangeland management issues.
