Midcoast Conservancy Councils

When our new, unified organization was formed, the founders recognized the importance of retaining close connections to the many communities we serve. Local Councils, one from each of our four “parent” organizations, represent the interests and passion for the places from which Midcoast Conservancy evolved. Our councils help us stop and listen – making sure we we don’t leave anyone behind.

Councils typically meet monthly depending on the council. Each council is supported by a designated staff liaison. Council members provide important advice, expertise, channels for communication, creative ideas on programming, and precious volunteer support for programs, events and stewardship. A number of Council members serve on committees of the Midcoast Conservancy Board of Directors.

If you are interested in becoming a member of one of the Councils, please contact the staff liaison or Jody Jones, Midcoast Conservancy’s Executive Director.
