NatureServe Canada Board of Directors and Associate Members

Le Conseil d'administration de NatureServe Canada assure la gouvernance pour les membres canadiens du réseau de NatureServe.

The NatureServe Canada Board of Directors is comprised of representatives from the eight Constituent Member conservation data centres. In addition to governing the operations of NatureServe’s independent national affiliate, NatureServe Canada’s Board of Directors helps the network achieve its shared mission by:

  • Representing the network members in strategic, annual, and operational planning
  • Coordinating communications and maintaining connections between network members and NatureServe staff
  • Seeking and contributing to fundraising and business development
  • Nominating a representative member of the NatureServe Board of Directors

In addition to the Board of Directors, NatureServe Canada includes Associate Member representatives from partnering organizations that support the purposes of the network and who contribute and manage important biodiversity data. The collaborative efforts of the Constituent and Associate Members facilitate the effective planning and implementation of NatureServe Canada's activities and projects.

Please contact us if your organization is interested to learn more about Associate Membership in the NatureServe Canada.
