Board of Advisors

Board of Advisors

The Board of Advisors provides its members the benefit of staying informed about the work of Georgia Appleseed and influencing its growth and outreach in Georgia, without the responsibility of governance.

Inaugurated in 2009, the Advisors act as a sounding board for the Georgia Appleseed Board of Directors on new project ideas and aid in cultivation of new members for the governing board. They serve as ambassadors for Georgia Appleseed in their home communities, extending our reach by promoting Georgia Appleseed and its mission to the people and communities in which they live.
