BOARD OF DIRECTORS MEMBER
The Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy seeks candidates for its Board of Directors from all communities throughout the City of Pittsburgh. We are interested in finding candidates who are excited about our mission to restore and improve the public parks in the City of Pittsburgh, including our successful initiative to increase public funding for parks through a referendum that was approved by a majority of voters at the November 5, 2019 general election.
The Conservancy’s Board of Directors includes four City representatives and many more community and business leaders. Directors serve on one or more Board Committees, which include Audit, Finance, Planning, Community Engagement, Development, Education, Nominating & Governance, and Human Resources. Directors are expected to make a personal gift to the Conservancy’s annual fund commensurate with their financial ability, and 100% board giving is expected. There are four Board meetings per year, and each of the Committees meets 4+ times per year, usually in advance of the Board meetings.
Interested persons are encouraged to send an email and bio/resume to Pam Rollings at email@example.com.
Please see our volunteer page for upcoming events and ways to get involved.
