The Vermont Urban & Community Forestry Council (Council) is seeking applications to fill three member seats. Vacancies are for two representatives from local community groups engaged in urban and community forestry activities such as Tree Boards, Town Forest Committees, or Conservation Commissions and the third is for an at-large member. The Council is made up of 20 members and works with the Vermont Urban & Community Forestry Program to advise on strategic direction and support program delivery. The Council meets four times a year: the second Wednesday of September, December, March, and June at various locations across the state.
The Vermont Urban & Community Forestry Program is a partnership between the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks, & Recreation and the University of Vermont Extension, with a mission to lead citizens, businesses, and governments in understanding the value of urban and community forests and to promote civic responsibility for and participation in the stewardship of these resources for this and future generations. Members appointed to the Council are fairly balanced in terms of point of view represented, and represent a broad array of expertise, leadership, and relevancy to a member position and current programming efforts.
To be considered for membership, please provide the following:
- Name, affiliation, and contact information
- Rationale of serving on the Council and what you can contribute.
