Jeff Senterman, the former Catskills program director of the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference, was appointed the new executive director of the Catskills Center for Conservation and Development after the departure of former director Alan White. White completed his term earlier this month.

Senterman accepted his new position at a gathering of the CCCD's members on Saturday, Aug. 29. (A Senterman is still at the helm of the NYNJTC, though -- Jeff's brother, Doug, is the new Catskill program director at the NYNTC, after getting the job earlier this year.)

At the NYNJTC, Jeff Senterman forged partnerships with various government entities and volunteers to expand access to and stewardship of trails in the Catskill Park. He'll likely bring a similar focus on collaboration and outdoor recreation to his new gig. 

A native of Greene County, Senterman also brings much-needed knowledge of the Catskills outside Delaware County to the CCCD, which is based in Arkville.
