Prospective Board or Committee Members

We encourage volunteers to serve on committees and help us with events and functions.  Our website has information about volunteer opportunities and committees.

Terms for members of the board of directors are for three years.  Election of new board members takes place at our Annual Meeting which occurs in the fall of each year for terms that take effect on January first of the following year.  Announcements for openings on the board are included on the website, on Facebook, and in emails to our members and contacts. 

If you are thinking about applying for a board position, we encourage you to become engaged in Sustainable Tallahassee by getting involved in a committee, becoming a member, and attending our functions.  We invite you to explore your interest with any of our board members or committee chairs.
