Angie Rosser to Serve as National Wildlife Federation’s Vice President of One Federation

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The National Wildlife Federation announced that Angie Rosser has been named the next vice president of One Federation. Rosser, who most recently led the Federation's West Virginia affiliate, will spearhead the strategic development of One Federation — the partnership and cooperation with the organization's 52 state and territorial affiliates to achieve their shared vision for helping people and wildlife thrive.

"For more than a decade, Angie Rosser has been an integral member of the National Wildlife Federation family, and we are beyond excited to welcome her to our leadership team,” said Collin O’Mara, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation. “Angie's visionary leadership of the West Virginia Rivers Coalition and relentless advocacy for clean water and clean air have been nothing short of extraordinary. As we continue to deepen the partnerships with our state and territorial affiliates across the United States, we are incredibly fortunate that Angie will bring her extensive experience and track record of success leading a state affiliate, as she spearheads our efforts to fulfill the promise of becoming One Federation."

“I’m honored by the opportunity to lead One Federation, and thank senior leadership for their strong investment in its success,” Rosser said. “During my experience in affiliate leadership, I’ve learned firsthand how important state and local perspectives are to informing and advancing the Federation’s broader goals. I look forward to engaging in this work at a national level, and to working with each and every one of our member affiliates in our shared efforts to support wildlife across the country.”

Rosser has served as Executive Director of the West Virginia Rivers Coalition, the National Wildlife Federation’s West Virginia affiliate, since 2012. Throughout her tenure, she has played a foundational role in helping WV Rivers increase its reach and impact amid several critical moments, such as the 2014 Elk River chemical spill and West Virginia’s fracking boom. She also serves as the West Virginia Headwaters Waterkeeper, where she supports river health in West Virginia’s Monongahela National Forest, and served as co-chair of the Choose Clean Water Coalition and the Federation’s Water Caucus. Rosser received her BA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and her MA in organizational communication from West Virginia University.
