Regional Leadership

NAI Region 7 is managed and directed by four elected officers–all of which are volunteers and members of Region 7–that comprise the Regional Board. Board members are elected by the voting members of the Region for three-year terms.

The Board is supported by the Committee Chairs, State Representatives, communications staff, etc. (collectively referred to as the Regional Leadership Team) serving in key roles to deliver member services.  Feel free to get in touch – we’re always happy to answer your questions about Region 7 and want to hear from you.

Get Involved

We are currently looking to fill several key roles and there are always plenty of special projects to work on.  Click here to see job descriptions for all roles!

For those of us who have been in this profession for a while, it’s a great way to “give back” to the community.  And for those of us who are new to the profession, it’s a fantastic way to meet other interpreters, gain new skills and expand your professional networks.  If you don’t have time to fill a ‘formal’ position, we need help with a range of special projects and work areas including:

  • Workshops and Training
  • Communications
  • Membership Drives
  • Finance and Fundraising

    I just joined NAI and am eager to help out however I may. I have about 10 years of interpretive experience and training under my belt as a naturalist, 5 years as an administrator. I currently live in Moab, Utah and currently work at Dead Horse Point State Park. I tried to click on the email links provided, but it did not work for me.

    I just renewed my membership after being inactive for many years. I can’t use the links to contact anyone but am interested in helping out with workshops. I’ve been a CIG since 2007 and currently am the manager of Vietnam Veterans Memorial State Park in Angel Fire, NM.

      Hello Kate! Thanks for getting in touch — we’d love to have you get involved. Please send me your e-mail or phone number and we can talk more. My e-mail is wjbevil(@) NOTE to remove the parentheses around the “@” — put there so spam bots don’t pick up my e-mail address!

      Kind regards,
