Meet the Friends Board & Advisors

We are a diverse team of deeply passionate Allegany State Park enthusiasts. Together, we engage in strategic decision-making and initiatives which we believe best for the park, our organization, and the park's many, many stakeholders. We not only act as stewards of Allegany, but as trusted fiduciaries responsible for the most beneficial allocation of our extraordinary volunteers, financial resources, and the talents of our executive board and advisors. Elections are held annually each December and anyone 18 years or older is eligible to run.
