The Appalachian Trail Conservancy is calling for nominations for individuals interested in being considered for membership to its Board of Directors.Nominations will be accepted through March 15th for interested parties available to serve beginning August 12th, 2018.
Under the ATC’s bylaws, membership meetings are now held each year, rather than every other year, and the elected leadership serves staggered terms, with one-third of the positions coming open each year.

A diverse range of skills and experiences suitable for national nonprofit governance is being sought among nominees, and the ATC’s members are encouraged to engage in the process. Desirable qualifications include a passion for the A.T. and commitment to its partnership network, as well as various skills.
The board, representing all of the ATC’s members, focuses on directions for the ATC, financial stability, and operations in a strategic sense. All nominations should include both the nominee’s and the nominator’s name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address, with a description of the person’s relevant experience, skills, and attributes.
