President - Todd schaller
Wisconsin born and raised (Bangor, WI), in a family who enjoyed all things outdoors. After graduating from college at UW-Stevens Point I was fortunate to combine my interest for the outdoors with a 32 year career with WDNR as a Conservation Warden. In those 30+ years I worked in many areas of Wisconsin in a variety of roles within Bureau of Law Enforcement. The final 6 as Chief Conservation Warden.
I’ve been active with WCWA since it was started in the early 1990. My wife and I live in Sun Prairie and continue to enjoy all things outdoors; camping, hiking, biking etc. My personal passion is waterfowl hunting. In addition to WCWA I am also a volunteer Director for Wisconsin Waterfowl Association.

Vice PResident - JIM JUNG
I began my career with the DNR as an LTE Ranger in 1987 and then as Special Warden for the Woodruff Team. I was hired full time in 1993 and stationed in Two Rivers as the MEU Warden for Manitowoc and Kewaunee Counties. I transferred to my current station in Rhinelander in 2003 and have been proudly serving that community since. I enjoy hunting, fishing, and trapping as well as taking trips on my motorcycle. I retired from the warden service in 2019 and took over as the WCEF President that same year after serving as the WCWA/WCEF Treasurer for 16 years. In 2020, I took over the roll as WCEF Vice President.
Treasurer - Tom wrasse
I grew up on the western shores of Lake Winnebago just south of Oshkosh. We were an outdoor recreation family enjoying what all the seasons had to offer. My playground was just a few steps from the back door. I learned at an early age how precious the natural resources were. It was that passion that led me to seek an education in resource protection. While attending the University of Wisconsin River Falls I was hired as a Natural Resources Patrol Officer at Kinnickinnic State Park. Shortly after graduation I was hired as a Conservation Warden stationed in Madison. My career path took me to the warden supervisory position in Dodgeville and a few years later on to Woodruff where I eventually retired. I have been involved in volunteering with a whole variety of organizations all related to outdoor recreation in some aspect. My latest endeavor involves the capacity of treasurer for both the Wisconsin Conservation and Education Foundation (WECF) and the Wisconsin Conservation Warden Association (WCWA). While my career has come to fruition my love toward outdoor recreation lives on.

Secretary - Bill Schwengel
My life-long ambition was to work in the field of natural resources. I grew up in the West Bend area and graduated from UW-Madison in 1977, majoring in soil science and wildlife ecology. Throughout college I worked part-time at the Kettle Moraine State Forest and as a special conservation warden. I was fortunate to have served as a conservation warden for 33 years, starting in 1978 and retiring as a warden supervisor at Eau Claire in 2011. During my career I was a field warden in Racine County and at Portage in Columbia County. I am a charter member of the WCWA and have served as secretary of the WCEF since 2017, where I also chair the warden history committee. My involvement with the WCEF gives me an opportunity to network with many people who are passionate about natural resources and outdoor recreation. I myself enjoy hunting, fishing, horseback riding, and working on our hobby farm. These activities keep me closely connected to the great outdoors.
WCWA Representative - Dale Romback
I grew up in a few different areas of Wisconsin from Grant County to Door County and a couple places in between. I graduated from UW-Stevens Point in the winter of 2012 and was hired full time as a Conservation Warden in 2015. I was stationed in Marinette County in the fall of 2015, and became involved with the association shortly after that. In my free time I enjoy hunting and fishing with my wife as well as our dogs. I look forward to the future of the association and what new opportunities we can bring to our great state.

WCEF Past President - Bill Engfer
I have been on Board of Directors of the Foundation since it was started in 1998. My interest in trying to educate the public on the value of our environment and getting people to enjoy the outdoors that we have, was peaked while I was the Director of Recreation Enforcement and Education for the Department of Natural Resources. My goal was to expand our outreach to the public to let everyone know what the Foundation does and the many fine accomplishments it has helped achieve through its public charity work as a non-profit organization. I was able to expand our outreach to a new level in order to promote and fund more projects that supported conservation efforts and help develop leaders for tomorrow in the conservation field.
