Advocacy group PennFuture appoints Cindy Dunn from DCNR as CEO

A leading statewide environmental advocacy organization has named Cindy Dunn, who was deputy secretary for conservation and technical services for the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, its new president and CEO.

PennFuture said the appointment comes after a national search, according to a news release.
“I look forward to working actively with my new colleagues on the issue of climate change,” said Dunn, who cited in a statement shared urgency toward protecting the state’s landscape and water resources.
This summer, PennFuture said it had appointed Jim Abernathy on an interim basis to succeed George Jugovic Jr. in the leadership role.
PennFuture was created in 1998 to provide professional advocacy for environmental and public health policies, according to its website.
The organization’s work recently has included, on the issue of Marcellus Shale, a win to require DCNR to release drilling plans for Loyalsock State Forest in northern Pennsylvania.
