SAF Needs You! We're Seeking Candidates for the Young Professional Board Seat

April 14, 2021

Does providing your perspectives and connecting within the SAF community while learning about critical issues impacting forestry and SAF sound fun, interesting, and worthwhile? If so, and you’re under the age of 40, we want you to apply for the Young Professional (YP) position on the 2022 SAF Board of Directors.  

Nominations are currently being accepted for this position for a one-year term starting January 1, 2022. This is a non-voting position on the Board that is appointed by the SAF president from a pool of candidates nominated by the SAF Board district directors. The role of the YP is to provide a young professional voice based on your experiences and be a bridge between the membership and the SAF Board. 

SAF members in good standing under the age of 40 are eligible. YPs must be college graduates. Candidates are asked to submit a consent form and provide biographical information, a letter of interest, and a recent photograph to your district board member. Self-nominations welcome. 

The deadline to submit materials is August 15.
