About the Eastern National Board

Eastern National is governed by a nine-member board of directors. Candidates for positions on the board of directors are chosen for their past involvement or interest in, or knowledge of, the operations and programs of the association, or for their involvement in conservation, historic preservation, interpretation, or other activities relating to the work of the National Park Service and other public trusts. The association will also seek individuals with special talents needed to strengthen and enhance the operations of the association. No director may be a current employee of the National Park Service or any other public trust.
