Chris Lea joins Center board

JACKSON, Wyo. — Jackson resident Chris Lea is the newest board member of The Center Board of Directors.

Lea was elected at a quarterly meeting on December 12, 2019. He will serve a three-year term.

Lea retired from full-time law practice in early 2018. Prior to retirement, he was actively involved in the Promotion Marketing Association, and its successor organizations, and served on both the Law Conference and Legal Committees since 1992, and was a frequent speaker, and former Co-Chair, at PMA’s Promotion Marketing & Law Conference, the leading legal conference in its field.

Lea has been coming to Jackson since the late 1970s. In 2015 he and his partner, Donald Hughes, made the full-time plunge and both became full-time residents of Wyoming in 2016. Lea spends considerable time on the National Board of Directors of The Trust for Public Land, a non-profit organization based in San Francisco. He also serves on the Northern Rockies Advisory Board of the Trust for Public Land, which encompasses Wyoming, Idaho and Montana. Local projects in Jackson have included the saving of the Hoback Basin, the creation of Astoria Park and acquisition of the Upper Gros Ventre River Ranch.

In his spare time, Lea enjoys golf, hiking, canoeing, and cross-country skiing. Lea’s partner, now husband, enjoys many of these activities but is especially fond of horseback riding.
