The Upper Colorado River Watershed Group is GROWING!
We are looking to add new talent and fresh perspectives to our Board of Directors.
The Board of Directors is actively involved in organizational governance, program development and implementation, overseeing our annual budget and meeting fundraising goals, and navigating UCRWG into the future. Board members are all volunteers who are passionate about preserving and restoring the health, beauty and sustainability of the Upper Colorado River for generations to come.
We are looking for a variety of skills to fill multiple Board vacancies, with a strong emphasis on looking for candidates with prior fundraising experience or an eagerness to jump into the world of nonprofit fundraising. We would also LOVE to connect with candidates with nonprofit management skills or a professional background in Colorado Water Law.
Candidates must be 15 years of age or older and a stakeholder in the Upper Colorado River watershed – our Board is composed of established Grand County residents, Colorado Front Range water users and local second-home owners.
The main requirement is a passion for protecting and restoring the Upper Colorado River watershed – anyone interested in working to SUPPORT THE SOURCE is STRONGLY encouraged to apply.
Board members are required to actively participate in monthly board meetings – we meet in person in Grand County when possible and virtually when not. All directors are elected for a three-year term following a three-month probation period.
Since UCRWG is a small, growing nonprofit, Board members are actively involved in organizational management and program development and implementation. Board members are strongly encouraged to join committees and required to actively participate in fundraising. Members are also expected to make UCRWG one of their top-three charitable contributions through an annual donation commiserate with each individual member’s ability to give.
Involvement on the UCRWG Board gives you an active voice in watershed restoration and conservation efforts in the Upper Colorado River basin. Our Board members are an invaluable and critical component of our organization – they are the champions for the work that we do that make it all possible.
