Just as habitats are strengthened by biodiversity, the Minnesota Land Trust Board is strengthened by diverse perspectives and backgrounds from across the state. Our board members are essential to realizing the mission of the organization.
Members serve for three years and have the option to serve a second term. The Board meets four times per year, with two meetings held in-person and two meetings online. Board members are also expected to serve on at least one board committee; committees generally meet online. Board membership is a voluntary (unpaid) position.
Board member responsibilities include:
- Mission: Understand and support the mission and programs of the Minnesota Land Trust. Follow trends and issues related to land trusts and the protection of natural and scenic areas.
- Fundraising: Contribute financially to MLT at a personally meaningful level.
- Participation: Prepare for and fully participate in board meetings and other organizational activities. Participate in at least one board committee.
- External perspective and expertise: Provide a link with the broader community by sharing perspectives, resources and talents.
- Outreach: Serve as an ambassador and advocate for MLT. Identify potential board members and others who might assist the organization.
- Fiduciary Responsibilities: Exercise reasonable and prudent care with respect to the organization’s financial and other assets.
