The Garden’s Congressional Charter included the establishment of a Board of Trustees to govern the organization. The NTBG Board is dedicated to carrying out the mission and objectives of the organization. Members of the Board of Trustees meet two times per year to review progress, make policy decisions, and approve budgets and programs, based on the recommendations of the Director and his staff.
NTBG’s Board consists of distinguished members from across the United States. While their backgrounds and interests are varied, they have a high interest in plant conservation, botanical research, and related education. In addition, a number of members of the Board are experienced and successful in financial management and fundraising.
Trustees are elected by the Board. Board service is voluntary and no compensation is received.
