Director



Our board of directors reflects a broad spectrum of trail users, including mountain and road bicyclists, hikers and runners, equestrians, environmental scientists, youth educators, rescue dog trainers, and more. We share the FORT Friends philosophy of stewardship, friendship and volunteerism. Our Bylaws specify a maximum of 11 directors and must have been a member for a year before nomination. Members in good standing are eligible to be a director after one year. Directors hold two-year terms and officers are elected each year. Elections occur in November and the term of office is January through December.

Current Board of Directors, as of April 2014:
