Mangan Holcomb Partners' Colbie Jones, of Stuttgart, has been elected to serve on the Arkansas Urban Forestry Council (AUFC), a nonprofit focused on the conservation of urban and community trees across the state. Jones was elected to the council along with Lisa Tribble, of Mabelvale.


Jones will serve on the board providing AUFC with communications and marketing
strategies to further AUFC’s mission and efforts across the state. She currently serves as
a marketing account executive for Mangan Holcomb Partners and is the vice president of
professional development for the Arkansas chapter of the International Association of
Business Communicators. Jones previously assisted with implementing public relations
efforts to raise awareness of the council’s second annual Natural State Tree Climbing
Championship.

“Myself and our current board members are excited to welcome our new appointees to
help further AUFC’s conservation efforts for urban and community trees,” said Anthony
Whittington, AUFC board president. “Their combined experience will help us reach more
Arkansas communities, and share the value of good urban forest policies and
management.”
