You Can Join the Appalachian Trail Conservancy Stewardship Council

Published Jan 19, 2017

Nominations are being accepted to serve as a volunteer on the Stewardship Council of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy.

The Appalachian Trail Conservancy is accepting letters of interest from people wishing to volunteer to serve on the ATC Stewardship Council. The Stewardship Council is a committee serving the ATC Board of Directors, and helps develop policy and take other initiatives on behalf of Trail Stewardship in several areas: Trail and Camping Management, Youth and Diversity Engagement, Agency and Club Partnerships, and Landscape Protection. See this link for biographical information about current Stewardship Council members (scroll to the bottom of the link).

Council membership is a wonderful opportunity for dedicated advocates of the Appalachian Trail to become integrally involved in Trail management. A two-year commitment to volunteer service, including occasional time committed to travel to Harpers Ferry (twice-annually) and phone conferences (typically, monthly), is required.

To express an interest, or for more information, please send an email to Nominating Committee member Tom Banks (ATLeaveNoTrace@aol.com) (include in the subject line: "Stewardship Council"), and no attachments, please.

Here's a link to the ATC Leadership Page showing biographical sketches of the current membership of the Stewardship Council (at the bottom), as well as the Board of Directors and the Advisory Council.
