Purpose of Board Fellows Program 

TPWF’s Board Fellows Program offers the opportunity for rising conservation leaders in Texas to gain invaluable experience and mentorship in nonprofit management and board governance while supporting our mission. The program is an important element of Stewards of the Wild’s ongoing mission to grow the next generation of conservation leaders in Texas. 

Board Fellows, Role Details: 

  • Fellows will serve a two-year term with the opportunity to serve a second term as a senior board fellow. 
  • Fellows are non-voting, visiting participants of the TPWF board. 
  • Fellows are strongly encouraged to attend all board meetings (3 per year) but may miss up to one meeting per year if absolutely necessary. Board meetings are typically held in January, April/May, and October, but these timeframes may vary. Board meetings may take place anywhere in Texas. 
  • Fellows will be required to execute a long-term project (either self-conceptualized or assigned) that directly supports the Stewards of the Wild mission and elevates their experience/influence within the conservation realm. 
  • Fellows must be current members of a Stewards of the Wild Chapter. 
  • Candidate must have co-chair experience on a Stewards of the Wild Chapter Advisory Council, and/or equivalent leadership experience and a history of taking serious initiative within their Stewards chapter. 
  • The ideal applicant for the Board Fellows Program should have a good understanding of, and deep interest in, conservation issues affecting Texas.
