EBC Board

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.

Along with the voting board of directors, Explore Butte County works with an advisory board comprised of 2 representatives from each participating jurisdiction and 2 seats for the county as a whole. The Board leadership offers the organization to operate with the parameters set forth by the Management District Plan, and offering varied voices and opinions regarding travel and tourism success for Butte County.
