Ohio's top waterways official to retire in 2011

After 30 years of service to Ohio boaters, Pam Dillon is prepared to say she's headed out to sea, ready to announce her retirement.

Dillon is currently the chief of the Ohio Division of Watercraft, having served in that capacity since the fall of 2007.

Immediately prior to her job as Watercraft Division chief Dillon was head of the American Canoe Association. This association is a national paddle-sports advocacy group. And prior to that stint, Dillon was deputy chief of the Watercraft Division.

Also, Dillon is the Watercraft Division's first-ever chief and as such has helped lay the foundation for women to take over the top spot in other Ohio Department of Natural Resources' high-profile divisional chief jobs.

“The boaters of Ohio are exceptional, and I believe we’ve worked hard to serve them,” Dillon said. "I should be announcing something within the next couple of weeks."
