Nature Camp Foundation Board Development

     At a recent meeting of NCI and NCF boards, members discussed the exciting developments of the past few years, notably that Nature Camp is in sound condition on many fronts. Our membership is vast and growing annually, and interest in Camp by families across the state remains relatively consistent from year to year. To date, both boards have been staffed from our membership through the Nominating Committee, formed anew each fall and led by the Vice President of the Nature Camp Foundation. This process has served us well for ten years, but we have found it difficult at times to fill certain positions.

     To remedy this situation and leverage the considerable talents in the Nature Camp family, we are crafting language now to create a Board Development Committee, led by the NCF Vice President, to replace the Nominating Committee. This perennial committee will identify individuals who have expressed interest in helping out Camp beyond Service Weekends and position them on one of the different committees that serve the needs of Camp. Members of those committees would then be in a better position to serve as chair of their respective committee after gaining first hand experience. Currently, board members are working to modify or add committees that will best serve the needs of Camp and will be seeking individuals to volunteer for those committees.

     Once formed, the Board Development Committee will begin contacting people who have indicated interest in volunteering for Camp.

     If you have any interest in being on the Board Development Committee, please contact Chris Chamberlin. We sincerely look forward to increasing the opportunities for members to get involved! Stay tuned to those emails! Topher.Chamberlin@gmail.com 434-426-5550
