EcoWomen Board Members will serve a two-year term and will be eligible for re-appointment for two additional terms.
EcoWomen Board Members will consider EcoWomen a philanthropic priority and make annual gifts that reflect that priority. So that EcoWomen can credibly solicit contributions from foundations, organizations, and individuals, EcoWomen expects to have 100 percent of Board Members either make a personal contribution or raise equivalent funds. There are several paths to achieve this goal, however, so applicants should not consider fund availability as a barrier to applying.
Board meetings are held on a monthly basis with one meeting per year being in-person for a full-day retreat.
Service on EcoWomen’s Board of Directors is without remuneration.
We look forward to hearing from you!
