The Board of Directors manages the Society and consists of the Officers, which constitute the Executive Committee, Chairs of the Standing Committees, Directors-At-Large, and the Chapter Representatives.  Any member of the Society in good standing who is actively engaged in the conservation of Virginia’s native plants may be elected to the Board.

The Officers, Directors-At-Large, and Standing Committee Chairs are elected at the annual meeting from a slate prepared by the Nominating Committee, to serve a term of three (3) years. The Chapter Representatives are presidents of the chapters, unless appointed by their board to represent the president.

The Annual Meeting and a Board of Directors meeting is regularly held in September. Three (3) other Board meetings are held in June, December and March. View the VNPS Event Calendar.
