Seeking service-oriented volunteers, committed to a healthy water future

Watershed Management Group (WMG) is a Tucson-based nonprofit organization that develops and implements community-based solutions to ensure the long-term prosperity of people and health of the environment. We are currently seeking volunteers to join our board or board committees, with a passion to serve the community and interest in joining a dynamic, solutions-focused group. In the next two years, the board and committees will support a variety of WMG’s principle initiatives including:

  • Launching a 50-year action plan to restore Tucson’s heritage of flowing rivers through the River Run Network and formation of a Santa Cruz River watershed collaborative;
  • Expanding WMG’s water harvesting educational programs and services to engage limited income and underserved populations;
  • Developing a strong, well-funded branch in the Phoenix Valley that creates hubs of water conservation and green infrastructure initiatives in Mesa, Tempe, Phoenix, and Glendale.

The board and committees help develop the strategic goals of the organization, ensure adequate staff and financial resources, and help monitor the overall health of the organization. WMG is committed to building a diverse and inclusive board and committees that fosters proactive dialogue, collaborative learning, and shared leadership.

Board Membership: WMG board members are expected to attend monthly board meetings, serve actively on at least one committee of the organization, support the organization financially and/or through attendance at outreach and fundraising events, and to assist the organization in achieving its goals and mission. WMG board members serve a two-year term of service and are eligible for additional terms. 

Committee Membership: In addition to board service, we are also looking for members to join our Governance, Development, and Finance committees; committee members may have experience or interest in accounting, fundraising, event planning, legal/insurance, human resources, or may be looking to expand their experience into any of these areas. Committee membership offers volunteers an introduction to the leadership of the organization and support the achievement of the mission with a lesser time commitment. Committees typically meet 1 hour/month and will work on projects independently between meetings.

To learn more about WMG and board and committee service, join us on Monday, October 1, 2018, from 5:30 to 7pm at our Board Open House. Please RSVP to Bill Wilkening, WMG’s Board Chair, at wmgboard2018@gmail.com.
