SdCNHA Seeking Board Members
The Sangre de Cristo National Heritage Area was designated by Congress in 2009 for the purpose of providing an “integrated and cooperative approach for the protection, enhancement, and interpretation of the natural, cultural, historic, scenic and recreational resources of the Heritage Area.” Stunningly beautiful natural resources and a rich mixture of settlements converge here to make this area one of the most unique and well-preserved cultural landscapes in the nation.
The SdCNHA Board of Directors has three primary goals that guide their planning and implementation: Support the development of a vibrant heritage tourism sector that stimulates preservation, economic development, and community revitalization; Tell the stories of the SdCNHA in ways that build community pride and support preservation, living traditions, economic development, and community revitalization; Cultivate excellent management that provides regional leadership, reflects community values, and achieves sustainability. Past local projects have included historic building rehabilitation, interpretation of historic and scenic/recreational sites, educational programming and cultural events, and documentation of culturally significant components of traditional ways of life.
Eligible applicants must reside within SdCNHA boundaries: Alamosa, Costilla and Conejos Counties. The position is volunteer based and requires a commitment of one board meeting a month and participation on one subcommittee.

Applicants are encouraged to visit the SdCNHA’s website and review the organization’s Goals and Objectives, found on the Management Plan page:
