We are recruiting new members for the Future Leaders of Conservation Advisory Board (FLOC)! We’re currently accepting applications from Central North Carolina – Charlotte and Triad regions. FLOC is an advisory board comprised of young adults across North Carolina, ages 21-35, brought together to assist CTNC’s mission to connect young adults and emerging leaders with conservation organizations, issues, and policies impacting our state.
FLOC members will learn about the environmental, health, and economic benefits of conservation through peer-to-peer networking and outreach. Over time, we hope that FLOC members will support land trusts’ outreach and engagement activities and develop their own events and initiatives that reach young people and other audiences that are not familiar with land trusts.
For our purposes, Central NC includes the following counties: Alamance, Anson, Cabarrus, Caswell, Catawba, Cleveland, Davidson, Davie, Forsyth, Gaston, Guilford, Iredell, Lincoln, Mecklenburg, Randolph, Rockingham, Rowan, Stanly, Stokes, Surry, Union, and Yadkin.
Deadline to apply is Friday, April 21, 2017 at 5 PM.
Successful FLOC applicants will
- Be between 21 – 35 years old (applicants below the minimum age requirement will be addressed on a case-by-case basis by the board selection committee),
- Reside in Central NC in the Charlotte or Triad region.
- Be enthusiastic, willing to learn about, interested in, and/or knowledgeable about conservation, and willing to inform peers about conservation work and its benefits for all North Carolinians.
Expectations of members:
Members of the FLOC should expect to:
- Attend four FLOC board meetings a year, in person or via conference call,
- Serve on a committee of the FLOC advisory board,
- Attend quarterly conference calls or meetings for FLOC board committee(s),
- Be a fully participating and engaged member, and
- Provide honest insight through established channels to the Conservation Trust for North Carolina’s staff and Board of Directors to help extend and enhance CTNC’s efforts.
We look forward to growing our FLOC in 2017! Click here to learn more about the Future Leaders of Conservation Advisory Board.
