SAWC Seeking Interested Candidates for Board of Directors


The Southeast Alaska Watershed Coalition is seeking volunteers interested serving on the Coalition’s Board of Directors!

In order to stay true to our core principle of building a voice for communities we believe this Coalition should be steered by regional leaders and community professionals who work to protect, promote and restore our region’s watersheds. Candidates should align with the Coalition’s mission of inspiring Southeast Alaskans and supporting community organizations working toward the wise management of Southeast Alaska’s watersheds.

The Board of Directors is expected to guide and implement the mission and strategic direction of SAWC. As a governing board, roles and duties include providing overall organizational leadership such as setting policies and procedures, providing financial oversight, and working to ensure the organization has adequate resources (money, staff, and equipment) to achieve its mission. Each Board Member is encouraged to put their unique skills and interests to use.

Board meetings are held via teleconference every other month, for a total of six (6) meetings per year, with at least one in-person meeting annually. Much of our governing functions occur during Board meetings.

If you are passionate about the local stewardship of our region’s watershed resources and have a desire to work collaboratively across a range of stakeholders to achieve a balanced use of our resources in order to benefit our communities, economies, and quality of life in Southeast Alaska, please consider contributing your time and talents to this regional effort!
