Our Board of Directors

The Board of Directors consists of an appointed officer (usually the President) of each local chapter within the state. Representatives from other forestry organizations, or others who have an interest in OSWA’s activities, may be voted onto this Board as well. An ideal Board of Directors will have representatives from all counties in the state, as well as other professionals with expert information and advice.

Board approves budgets and the organization’s annual Work Plan. Board members are elected by the members in the County Chapters they represent. OSWA seeks input and expertise from professionals in relevant fields and can add them to the Board as non-voting members.
