Community leaders serve on the NNLC Board of Directors and their vast experience and backgrounds provide the special expertise and skills necessary to ensure success of the organization. Each county of the Northern Neck is represented on the Board.The NNLC is fortunate to have as Honorary Board Members three distinguished conservationists:  Mary Louisa Pollard, founder and long time Board member;  George C. Freeman, Jr., one of the crafters of the landmark Virginia Outdoors Plan, the first significant legislative effort to protect Virginia's environment; and W. Tayloe Murphy, Jr., former member of the Virginia House of Delegates, who worked tirelessly on the Chesapeake Bay Commission and later served as Virginia's Secretary of Conservation and Natural Resources.
