Every year, Northwest Trail Alliance elects a rotating list of 6 new board members (two year position).  This year, we have 5 new positions up for elections, but are looking for 6 people.  The sixth person would be an alternative advisory role in case a current board member decides to move mid-term.  If you are not sure you want to become a Board Member, but want to help and make a difference, we want to hear from you also.  We are always looking for people who want to organize group rides, organize major NWTA events, raise money, trail stewards, etc…
