Seeking Board Member Nominations

Call for Leadership

The OkIPC is looking for people to take a leadership role in the Oklahoma Invasive Plant Council. Are you interested in helping us to educate Oklahomans about the environmental and economic cost invasive species have in the state?

In the past year, the OkIPC board has organized a state-wide invasive species conference, distributed invasive species posters to state legislators, established okinvasives.org, and educated 1000s Oklahomans on the problem of invasive species. We can do more with your help!

We have an open call for nominations for 5 Board Members and President Elect.  Board members will serve for two years.  President Elect will serve a total of four years, two as President Elect and two as President.

Anyone with an interest in invasive species in the state is encouraged to be nominated. We also encourage people to self nominate if you would like to become more involved in invasive issues.

To nominate someone other than yourself, please send name, affiliation, and contact information. A member of the Nomination Committee will contact that person to verify interest in the position.

To self nominate, please send your name, affiliation, contact information, and a short statement (100-200 words) about your background with invasive species and what you feel you would bring to the OkIPC Board.

Nominations will be made public after the 4th quarter Board meeting in December.  Elections will be conducted electronically in January.
