Smc director interview

2) vision for SMC; importance of member input

- source of high-quality data vs. source of high-quality information

what the SMC can do well, what it can't do well, and where collaboration/cooperation works best to meet member goals and where it doesn't

addressing core member needs, specific member needs, and peripheral needs, including not yet identified.

funding


Smc director interview

strategies for achieving SMC member goals

increasing funding

increasing productivity

collaboration/cooperation/competition

raw data vs. final products for forest management

"license to operate" research and education, what role should SMC play?

International/National collaboration


Smc director interview

If members asked me to be Director, here are immediate steps I would take

- ask for level playing field with OSU coops:

$37,350 spendable from dues annually

- reduce my teaching load, increase time to SMC: $90-120K/y available from ESRM100 "profit", $34.5 K/y from salary buyback, also Dave Brigg's summer SMC salary and Corkery chair available. 1) hire Paul Footen part-time to help me teach, 2) hire additional faculty (Ettl?) or staff member or contract out to increase SMC staff and/or field time.


Smc director interview

If members asked me to be Director, here are immediate steps I would take:

- convene TACs, and have a wide-ranging discussion about goals for SMC

CIPS now much more active and focused on modeling effort; how do we support member's goals there by supporting CIPS?

with Dave retiring, how do we sustain wood quality effort? Is direct salary support of a WQ researcher a priority?

assess current member satisfaction with our direction.


Smc director interview

If members asked me to be Director, here are immediate steps I would take:

We also need to assure current faculty and staff that their work continues to be important to SMC members, and not lose the current momentum we have in collection of high-quality data from our field studies.

Eric Turnblom is currently a peer. I would like to keep it that way. He could succeed me when I retire.

Greg Ettl is potentially a very positive force for SMC, dynamic, able to get funding.


Smc director interview

If members think another person would make a better director, FOR WHATEVER REASON, it is my goal to support them and bring additional value to the SMC as I have done my best to do in the past. I am very happy to remain as Nutrition TAC leader if that is in the best interests of the SMC overall. Please do not choose me if you determine that Eric, Greg or another person would ultimately be a better leader and director for SMC. I will continue to work for SMC.
