The Middle Fork Willamette Watershed Council (MFWWC) is seeking candidates for its Board of Directors. The board of directors is responsible for guiding the organization, ensuring its sound fiscal management, and setting goals, objectives and policies. Board members are expected to show a clear commitment to the mission and goals of the organization, and to serve as advocates for the council in the community. 

Our mission is to work with communities for a healthy Middle Fork watershed through environmental education and habitat restoration.

The MFWWC is a local, non-regulatory, non-governmental community-based nonprofit organization focused on improving and stewarding the rivers and landscapes of the Willamette River headwaters through habitat restoration, youth education, and community engagement.  

The MFWWC Board of Directors represents the diverse interests and perspectives found throughout our geography – local landowners, land managers, businesses, recreation enthusiasts, timber and environmental advocates. Together, these individuals direct the strategic vision of our programs for the benefit of our local communities.  

The Council’s Board is currently seeking at-large volunteer members who live, work, or recreate in the watershed, or are otherwise affected by the watershed and its resources. Specifically, we are seeking individuals with experience, expertise or an interest in pursuing additional knowledge and skills in non-profit fundraising and development, in youth education, in the outdoor recreation industry, or represents a watershed-based business. Previous Board of Director service is not required, but experience with or knowledge of non-profit organization management is a plus.

Effective board members are team-players – willing and able to work well with a diverse group of individuals and interests towards the mission, goals, and strategic plan of the organization. Board members are elected to serve two-year terms and are expected to attend monthly meetings, participate on an organizational committee, and attend periodic Council-sponsored community events as available. Board committees include fundraising, community engagement, and education.

To apply: For consideration, please fill out this online questionnaire by September 30, 2018. Candidates will be reviewed on an ongoing basis for currently vacant positions, as well as for the 2019 Board elections in March.
