Join Art of Conservation's Board of Directors

Join Art of Conservation's Board of Directors 

We are looking for new board member to join our governance board.

General Information

Art of Conservation (AoC) is a United States 501 (C) 3 and a registered Mexican nonprofit dedicated to creating environmentally-sensitive citizens and leaders.  Operating in and around Tulum, Mexico, our classes for young teens use artistic expression to teach about human health, the animal world, the Yucatán’s unique biodiversity, environmental issues, and leadership skills. 

Board of Directors

We are looking for new board members to join our governance board.  This board not only provides support in the areas of strategy, finances, and operational evaluation, but participates in individualized, US-based fundraising efforts. 

Each board member attends three board meetings per year by teleconference and spends approximately 1-2 hours per week on committee and fundraising activities. 

Fundraising and Personal Giving Expectations

Every board member assumes an independent, self-motivated leadership role in fundraising.

Each board member is expected to secure at least $5000 per year for the organization.   This could be achieved by writing grants, spearheading US events, soliciting individual donations, securing corporate sponsorships, or making a personal donation. 

Committee Membership

Each board member participates in one of these three committees that conduct committee business on an as-needed basis between board meetings: 

Fundraising Committee

Finance Committee

Board Development Committee
