Board of Directors


Our volunteer Board of Directors consists of community-oriented leaders who represent a variety of interests in the Virgin Islands from both the public and private sectors. Traditional officer positions are assigned based on bylaws. The Board meets monthly, requires a seven-member quorum and holds an annual membership meeting to fill any vacant positions and to update members on the state of the organization and the state of the Park.
