Management Council

The Management Council of the King Ranch® Institute for Ranch Management is composed of ranch managers, wildlife specialists, and businessmen and women whose vast experiences in the ranching industry contribute to the wise direction of the program. The council meets quarterly to review and approve budgets, offer advice on curriculum, and provide input into symposium and lectureship topics. In addition, council members assist in the selection of students and serve on KRIRM graduate student committees.
