Meet the Board

The Western Michigan Chapter's Board of Directors is made of up nine volunteer leaders, elected by the Chapter's dues paying membership.

In addition to making decisions with respect to budget, policy, and legal obligations, the Board of Directors sets the direction that the Chapter takes in fulfilling its Mission.

Committee Leaders

With a direction, set of goals, and timelines in place, it's time to start working! The Board passes tasks down to the appropriate committee heads, who in turn organize a pool of volunteers that work together to get the job done.

Our Corps of Volunteers

Of course, none of the Chapter's initiatives could be done without the support and participation of a host of volunteers, who generously give their time and energy to build, maintain, promote, and protect the Trail in Kent and Newaygo counties.

Please consider joining us in our efforts - we need your help to make our vision a reality.
