Organization & Committees

Committees

The Association is governed by our Constitution and By-Laws which calls for a President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and a maximum of 16 Board Members. All the committees below largely assist the board in making policy and awarding grants. All Standing Committee meetings can be attended by anyone, although only  participating Directors have voting rights.

NOTE: There are no set dates for committee meetings and they are held as needed to conduct foundation business. 

Executive Committees

The Executive committees are dictated by our Constitution and Bylaws and include:

Executive

that deals mostly with the larger issues of the Foundation, and consists of the President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and one “at large” director

Nomination

directors are nominated by the President to secure nominees for the Board and Directors and Officers for the Formal Annual Election Meeting

Finance

consists of Past Presidents who rotate as chairmen to help manage the Association’s finances and investments

Standing Committees

Our past success has always been based almost entirely through the efforts of past dedicated administrations, directors and other individuals working primarily through the organization’s active committees to involve us in various wildlife-oriented projects and issues, and also through our numerous social interactions and outings into Utah's great out-of-doors. Our standing committees are divided into two categories: Administrative to deal with more formal issues, and Consumptive and Environmental to cover the wide diversity of projects, issues, programs.
