Board members are volunteers who serve a three year term, once their nomination is approved by a vote of the current directors. This is a working board and director responsibilities include attendance and participation during monthly board meeting conference calls and a once a year retreat, as well as service on one or more committees or work groups which often entails additional conference calls and project work.
Requirements for nomination to the board are simply a passion for wilderness and a willingness to contribute time and energy to advance the professional practice of wilderness stewardship. In addition, the current board lacks sufficient representation from those with current or previous careers in all four federal wilderness management agencies, and from students, other non-profit organizations, and all regions of the country. Especially desirable are skills in non-profit organization, fund-raising, communications, legal affairs, and financial management.
Please consider joining the dedicated board members in helping to make the Society a success. It's a great time to get involved with our involvement in celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act in 2014 and committee projects taking shape. Your energy and enthusiasm can make a difference in the community of practice for wilderness stewardship.
