The HRWC Board of Directors is made up of appointed representatives from the Cherokee, Clay, and Blue Ridge Mountain Soil & Water Conservation Districts and the Towns and Union County Commissioners. [Cherokee and Clay County boards of commissioners opted to withdraw those counties from the Coalition in 2014 and 2015 respectively.] Additional At-Large Directors are appointed to ensure adequate representation of the communities served by the Coalition, as long as geographic diversity is not compromised, Directors residing in one county do not constitute a majority, and the total number of members does not exceed seventeen (17).
