The Comox Valley Trails Alliance is looking for volunteers who would like to sit on the Board of Directors.

“We know that there is a lot of support in the region to maintain and expand recreation trails as well as gain responsible access to trails that fall on private lands,” said organizer Genevieve Burdett in a news release. “There is, also, a growing recognition that recreation trails and areas are an economic asset to our communities. We are looking to those that have the right skills, knowledge and influence to join us.”

The Comox Valley Trails Alliance intends to work collaboratively to support the excellent work of the numerous organizations that exist in the Comox Valley. Already, the United Riders of Cumberland, Comox Valley Land Trust and Comox Valley Road Runners have offered to sit on the Board of Directors.

Many other regions have found a trails alliance to be valuable including Rossland, Fernie, Pemberton, Squamish and the Shuswap. The Shuswap Trails Alliance has been very active, completing over 70 greenway trail projects valued at more than $1.2 million in amenity assets over the past eight years.

The Comox Valley Trails Alliance is seeking up to five individuals to join the Board of Directors. Those with experience in fundraising, project management, governance, advocacy, marketing, legal, finance, and outdoor recreation are being sought specifically, though anyone from across the Comox Valley is invited to put their name forward.

Anyone interested in joining the Board of Directors is asked to submit a letter to the Comox Valley Trails Alliance outlining his or her interest and relevant experience. Letters can be emailed to cvtrails@gmail.com. Applications will be accepted until June 30, 2013.
