Tree Pittsburgh Board Member Recruitment

 In Blog

Tree Pitts­burgh is accept­ing new board mem­ber appli­ca­tions for four-year terms of ser­vice to begin in Jan­u­ary 2024. Mem­bers elect­ed to the board will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to par­tic­i­pate in sup­port­ing Tree Pittsburgh’s growth as we car­ry out the organization’s ambi­tious strate­gic plan. Our board of direc­tors is charged with the gov­er­nance of Tree Pitts­burgh as well as ampli­fy­ing its work through vol­un­teer­ing, fundrais­ing, and advo­cat­ing for oppor­tu­ni­ties to expand and pro­tect the tree canopy across Alleghe­ny County.

For this elec­tion cycle, we are seek­ing can­di­dates with pro­fes­sion­al expe­ri­ence and per­spec­tives in the fol­low­ing areas:

  • Donor cul­ti­va­tion and relationships
  • Finance or accounting
  • Com­mu­ni­ty engage­ment or advocacy
  • Com­mu­ni­ca­tions or marketing

We encour­age and wel­come can­di­dates who reflect the rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the racial, cul­tur­al, age, gen­der, and geo­graph­ic diver­si­ty of the con­stituents of Tree Pitts­burgh work in our region.
