NFEC Elects New President
North Fork Environmental Council head Michael Domino has stepped down as president of the organization. Replacing Mr. Domino is long-standing NFEC member Robert Feger who was elected earlier this month by the Board of Directors to fill the group's top post.
Mr. Feger has worked as a school administrator since moving to the North Fork in 1984. He currently holds the position of Superintendent of Schools for the New Suffolk Common District. He lives in Greenport with his wife, Teresa Taylor.
In addition to a new president, NFEC members expanded the board by electing eight new directors at the organization's annual meeting in October: Julie Amper, Terry Boyle, Hazel Kahan, Ken Ludacer, Anne Murray, Debbie O'Kane, Ken Rubino and Gwynn Schroeder. All newly elected directors have previously served the organization as volunteers, committee members or in a professional capacity.
