Board of Directors Nominations

NAA Board of Directors & Committees

Natural Areas Association (NAA) Board of Directors is actively seeking experienced, dedicated leaders to guide a growing organization. There are opportunities for Board of Director applications and Committee volunteers. Board and committee members need not exclusively be natural areas professionals; any individual with an interest in natural areas or biodiversity conservation is invited to apply. 

During 2024, a priority will be placed on applications with professional experience in nonprofit operations, management & leadership, and fundraising.

NAA directors are: 

  • Experienced leaders.

  • Generous with their time and talent.

  • Passionate about natural areas preservation and management.

  • Committed to serving land management practitioners.

Not ready to be a Board Member? Consider a Committee!

NAA is also currently looking for volunteers to serve on its many committees. Board committees work with the board and staff to deliver programs and services that support natural areas.

  • Board and committee members must join NAA and remain in good standing. 

  • Commit to attending regular remote meetings via conference call or video conference, attend one in-person meeting per year, and 

  • Demonstrate their support of NAA through an annual donation that is above and beyond annual membership dues donation (at an amount of their own choosing).

Board members serve 3-year terms. New board members begin their terms at the NAA Annual Membership Meeting. A Board member may be appointed sooner if there is an existing vacancy. To apply, please submit a completed application form and a resume or CV.
