The Council's Board of Directors is a stakeholder-representative board with additional roles traditional of a nonprofit board. This means that many of the seats are held by agency-appointed staff members, and we have a larger number of seats than many other nonprofit organizations.


Board members are responsible for the policies, financial oversight, and general direction of the Council. In addition to monthly meetings, board members are encouraged to participate in a committee (education, tech team, executive, diversity equity and inclusion, fiscal, and fundraising), and occasionally volunteer at an event or in another capacity.  

With strategic planning underway at the Council, now is a great time to join the board! At this time, we are primarily recruiting for science, environmental, recreational, and Native American Tribal/Cultural seats. We also have openings in neighborhoods, community at large, and business. Prospective board members should have proven enthusiasm for the work that we do in the watershed, value and practice a diversity, equity, and inclusion lens, and be willing to fulfill the basic expectations outlined in the board handbook. More information about Board Member roles and responsibilities can be found in the job description below:
