Our Team

From one Vermonter to the next

FNLC brings together members to serve on the Board of Directors that live in Grand Isle and Franklin Counties who share a passion for the waters of Northern Lake Champlain.


Directors are selected from the membership based on geographic location (representing as many towns as possible) and professional experience bringing a wide spectrum of talents and knowledge to the organization.

The Board of Directors meets regularly on the last Monday of the month and are open to the public.
