Keep Nacogdoches Beautiful (KNB), an organization committed to recycling education, litter abatement and beautification in Nacogdoches County, recently released applications for new board membership.
KNB is seeking active leaders who demonstrate an interest in the goals of Keep Nacogdoches Beautiful, including recycling, litter abatement, beautification, and education. Ideal candidates will have past board experience and legal or financial experience. Additional areas of consideration include fundraising, grant writing, public relations, and nonprofit development.
"Board members should expect to commit 4 – 10 hours outside of monthly board meetings," Katie Blevins, KNB executive director, said. "We have a very active board which leads to a valuable experience for directors."
The KNB board of directors impacts change in the local community that also benefits the local environment. They provide litter abatement and beautification services that prevent spending by the city of Nacogdoches and offer a popular technology recycling program, estimated to collect over 7,000 lbs. of recyclables this year, that otherwise would not be available to the Nacogdoches community.
The KNB board of directors formed a nominating committee to oversee the selection of new board member candidates for the organization. The search committee is comprised of three current board members, including KNB chairman, Ray Mitchum.
