North Santiam watershed seeking board members

The North Santiam Watershed Council (NSWC) Board of Directors is seeking potential future volunteer Board members. The NSWC Board of Directors represent the diverse interests and perspectives found throughout our geography – local landowners, land managers, businesses, recreation enthusiasts and natural resource advocates.

The mission of NSWC is “providing opportunities for stakeholders to cooperate in promoting and sustaining the health of the North Santiam watershed and its communities.”

 NSWC is seeking additional Board representation from the following stakeholder interests: Economic (timber, agriculture, aggregate, recreation and tourism or other business), natural resources, small cities in the watershed, Linn County (citizen at large, appointed by County Commissioners), North Santiam Middle and Upper sub-basin and education. 

Previous Board service is not required, but experience with or knowledge of non-profit organization management is a plus. Current Board committees include executive, governance, and finance. NSWC is planning to create committees for community engagement, fundraising and education. Therefore, we are specifically seeking individuals with experience, expertise or an interest in these areas. 

For consideration, please email [email protected]. Then, NSWC will coordinate a brief telephone and/or Zoom interview conversation with the members of the NSWC Governance Committee. Candidates will be reviewed on an ongoing basis for currently vacant positions.
