Board

The Greater Yellowstone Coalition’s Board of Directors is comprised of up to 24 volunteers who have a broad array of leadership, expertise and enthusiasm in protecting the world’s first national park and the lands that surround it. Board members exercise overall responsibility for GYC’s governance, including setting policy, overseeing fiscal responsibilities and operations, and establishing programs to help achieve the organization’s mission.

Board members are elected for three to four-year terms by dues-paying GYC members. All members of the board must have a strong commitment to protecting the vast 20 million-acre Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
