Consider Joining HUPC As A Boardmember!
HUPC is composed of a lively and committed group of board members. And we would like to add 3-4 like- minded folks to our cadre! But it takes a commitment to the HUPC Vision and Mission Statements found in this issue. They frame who and what we are. Board members are also asked to conscientiously attend monthly board meetings (usually the first Friday of the month, 7-9 PM). At least twice during the year a longer (1/2 Saturday) board meeting will be held to do strategic planning and reflect ion. Between meetings board members generally spend an additional 2-3 hours of work on HUPC issues or projects in other words, most board members devote 4-5 hours a month on HUPC. Board members are asked to participate in our issues and activities (rendezvous, conferences, etc.) All board members are asked to use whatever talents they have to raise money. All of these add to the sense of ownership of the organization. We also ask board members to commit to at least two years.
That is the technical stuff. It is fun, sometimes uproariously funny. On more than one occasion we've had to listen to bad poetry and off-key singing. An annual board meeting/backpack is held in the High Uintas. Friendships and communities are built, board meetings are rotated through board members houses, dogs, kids, spouses and others are welcome as long as they show more control than the board! Most importantly you are committing to assure the Uintas remain wild and are in the middle of some of the most complex, challenging and visionary conservation work in Utah. Let us know if you are interested because you are welcome!
