Serving on a Green Mountain Club committee is a great way to influence the Club’s day-to-day work and long-term planning. Committees generally meet virtually, two to four times a year.
How it works: The Board of Directors approves committees and working groups that will support the function of the organization. The Board’s president annually appoints committee members and chairpersons. Committees are comprised of GMC members and representatives from partner organizations.
