2019 COMMITTEE MEMBERS: COUNCIL & NON-COUNCIL (VOTING)

The Watershed Agricultural Council has 13 committees that provide guidance, direction and oversight as it pertains to programmatic focus. Committee members are recommended and selected based on their interest, participation and expertise as it applies to the Committee’s work.

Committees often invite key agency and nonprofit representatives to participate in meetings. This diverse group at the discussion table ensures that all parties and constituents that may be effected by the Council’s policies and programs are aptly provided an opportunity to be heard. Their concerns, as well as constructive input, guarantee a holistic perspective on watershed issues.

Anyone interested in serving on a committee or becoming a nonvoting member should contact Sally Fairbairn, Board Chair at (607) 865-7790, ext. 110.
