Management Board

IWJV Management Board members share a common passion for bird and other wildlife habitat, as well as a strong desire to nurture and grow partnerships with other entities in order to accomplish significant and meaningful conservation work in the Intermountain West.

The IWJV is governed by an executive-level Management Board—including state fish and wildlife agency directors, federal agency and non-governmental organization leadership, corporate partners representing the energy sector, and influential western private landowners—ensuring that varying perspectives have a seat at the table to seek common ground for lasting conservation.

At its core, the Management Board is committed to achieving the IWJV’s goals of developing strong science, providing funding and leverage opportunities, strengthening the public-private partnership, employing strategic communications, and monitoring and evaluation of outcomes to accomplish its vitally important work.
