Woodstock, CT; April 7, 2011 – Elizabeth Simon, sales engineer with Rogers Corporation High Performance foams, manufacturer of PORON® Performance Cushioning materials, was recently elected by Choose Outdoors governing committee as Board vice chair.

Choose Outdoors promotes outdoor recreation and active lifestyles through support for public lands and waters.

“Elizabeth is the consummate professional who is all about getting things done,” said Ward, founder and senior advisor of Choose Outdoors. “She is intimately knowledgeable about a broad spectrum of outdoor interests and shares Choose Outdoors ecumenical view about outdoor  recreation.”

“Choose Outdoors advocates many outdoor-related issues that are near and dear to me,” said Simon who lives in Seattle, WA. “For instance, it encourages recreational users of the outdoors such as hikers, hunters, skiers and snowmobilers to share the public lands and work collectively to protect them. Additionally, it develops programs that encourage kids to care about the planet and get outdoors with the hopes of curbing  obesity and violence caused by boredom.”

Choose Outdoors initiatives in 2009 and 2010 included:

“I look forward to working with a great group of people with diverse backgrounds and a caring for the outdoors,” added Simon.
