Join the Board

A satisfying way to be involved

There is space to serve on the Board!

Our Board of Directors is a “working board” that meets once a month. Each director contributes their skills and time to UPLC in a variety of ways that work for their particular skills and time availability. Directors are generally on at least one committee that meets either ad-hoc or monthly. The board is a diverse group of folks of all ages and walks of life–from foresters to teachers, to lawyers and accountants and stay-at-home caretakers–all skills and viewpoints are welcome and necessary to represent our community and keep UPLC on track with our mission.

If you agree with our mission: to promote the permanent legal protection of natural, agricultural, recreational, and scenic lands in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula (U.P.) through the use of conservation easements, land donations, and education, we invite you to consider offering to serve on the board.

Board meetings

Currently, the Board meets every second Tuesday of the month from 7:15–9:15 PM. You are always welcome to join our meetings simply to learn more about our work. Meetings are always open to the public, though since the meeting venue changes often, please send us an email to make sure you know the location.

We are a working board and have several standing committees, but frequently rely on ad-hoc task groups that form and meet only as long as needed to complete the task.
