Board of Directors

Each October, the Members of the Tryon Farm Institute hold their Annual Meeting at which time they appoint a select group of Members to serve on the annual-term Board of Directors.  The Board of Directors meets quarterly throughout the calendar year in order to carry-out all the functions of the organization from day-to-day operation to strategic planning.
