The Nominating Committee of The Outdoor Circle is seeking applications from those interested in serving on the Board of Directors. If you are interested, please send your resume and a cover letter explaining why you are interested in serving on the Board to mail(at)outdoorcircle.org by March 1, 2014. Board members serve an annual term from September 1st – August 31st. The Board of Directors is responsible for guiding the organization, including: setting policies, providing fiscal and managerial oversight, fundraising, and other related responsibilities. The Board is especially interested in members from the neighbor islands and those with professional experience in public relations, arborculture, and finance.
If you would like to get more involved, but are not sure about joining the Board just yet, then consider joining a committee. The Outdoor Circle Board relies on the work of our many volunteer committees to accomplish our mission, including:
Public Affairs — directing TOC’s attention on legislative matters and county issues with statewide implications for keeping Hawai‘i clean, green, and beautiful.
Education — implementing TOC’s goal of educating children and adults to appreciate the value of trees in our communities and natural ecosystems.
Tree planting and beautification — implementing TOC’s goals of planting trees and landscaping for the improvement of public greenspaces throughout the Hawaiian Islands.
Signs — defending TOC’s 100-year-old victory against billboards by ensuring sign regulations are enforced.
