Serving on the Board of Directors offers opportunities for expanding your network, exploring new professional skills ranging from budget management to personnel policies to investments, and ongoing professional development. Plus - it's rewarding to take a leadership role in protecting over 300 acres of land, and reaching over 35,000 people in seven counties of NY and PA! 

Members of our Board of Directors have the following responsibilities:

  • attending Board Meetings, scheduled on the last Wednesday of the month at 8:00am
  • joining and serving on at least one committee (more info below)
  • remaining active, dues-paying members of Tanglewood, at the membership level of their choice
  • attending the annual fundraiser, and selling tickets to their personal and professional networks
  • advocating for the organization and being eager to talk to their friends, families, and communities about the work Tanglewood does

Committees generally meet once a month for an hour, and meeting times vary depending on the schedules of the committee members.  Board members should plan for an average monthly commitment of about 2-4 hours preparing for Board meetings, reviewing minutes, and participating in committees, plus a significant annual time commitment in outreach and networking on behalf of Tanglewood - including attending and enjoying the annual fundraiser with your friends! 

Committees include: Fund Development, Board Development, Human Resources, Facilities and Trails and our Ad Hoc Children's Trail.
