The ATC is looking to add new members to its Stewardship Council, which will help guide the management and protection of the Appalachian Trail in the coming years.

ATC Stewardship Council

The ATC is calling for candidates for the 2019-2021 Stewardship Council. This special committee of the ATC board oversees policy development and programs related to stewardship of the A.T. and its surrounding lands and resources. The council takes a lead role in volunteer development and training, outreach and education, and identifying and mitigating threats to the Trail.

Council membership is an opportunity for dedicated advocates of the Appalachian Trail to become integrally involved in Trail management. Individuals may self-nominate or be nominated by someone else. Please see the linked (below, at "read this") document for more information about the Council and anticipated openings on Council committees. Members are expected to attend at least two two-day meetings each year and participate actively on council committees and in ATC task force and working groups, usually by email or conference call.
