Our Board of Directors is composed of up to 11 members, who serve three-year staggered terms. Three Directors, one of whom is Vice Chair, are selected from each of the three counties with lakeshore frontage (Cayuga, Seneca and Tompkins). The other Directors may reside anywhere in the Watershed and therefore are considered “At-Large”. The Board meets monthly. Directors serve on one or more committees, which include Program, Issues, Finance and Community Relations, Nominating; and ad hoc committees focused around particular issues (such as gas drilling and fracking) or events (such as Sunset on Cayuga and CanYou Canoe Cayuga).
