Board of Directors

Board of Directors

Explore Butte County was formed in November 2015. Per the bylaws, the governing body was designated to be comprised of 9 members, 7 of whom would represent lodging properties across the county, and 2 of whom would represent a business with an interest in travel and tourism. Each voting board member is elected by the Board for a two-year term.

Advisors to the Board

The Board may designate individuals to serve as advisors to the Board. Advisors serve a term of 1 year and must be a representative from their place of business' location or from their service area. There shall be no more than 2 times the total number of voting Board members serving as Advisors to the Board. The Nominating Committee will have the power to review nominees annually and ensure there is reasonable representation from the participating jurisdictions.
