SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — The Mule Deer Foundation has appointed the first South Dakota State Chairperson, Dale Johnson, Summerset.

Johnson is described as a great volunteer for the Mule Deer Foundation, volunteering for well over 12 years and a life member. 

He was pivotal in helping the new Regional Director re-start the Rapid City Chapter (Western Dakota) in 2017,  which had been dormant since 2010. 

Even though the chapter had folded back in 2010, Johnson continued to carry the MDF banner as he sat on South Dakota GF&P panels and boards of other organizations. 

Johnson has chaired the Western Dakota chapter since 2017 and as chapters have grown in South Dakota, the need for a State Chair was eminent. 

As a state chairperson, Johnson will be a key volunteer for the Mule Deer Foundation in South Dakota, he will coordinate directly with the MDF regional director to initiate and develop local fundraising chapters, events and other activities within South Dakota. 

Johnson is versed in MDF policy, goals, and objectives and will be able to represent MDF to chapter volunteers, members, local government agencies, conservation organizations, the media and general public. 

The state chair will also act as co-chair of the Project Review Committee, once established in South Dakota.
