State Land Trusts Advisory Board

The Land Trusts Advisory Board assists the State Land Commissioner in the formulation of policies and programs for the trust. By law, the Board is politically and geographically diverse. It represents the trust’s beneficiaries and key constituencies.

Two members represent the beneficiary institutions and one each representing agriculture, extractive industries, and conservation interests.

Two members serve at large. The members are appointed by the State Land Commissioner and confirmed by the State Senate to serve six-year terms.
