Our Members

Our Members

Telluride Association has an all-volunteer board of directors, or “members,” usually numbering between 60 and 100. Telluride members manage the Association’s programs and endowment, and they direct its future. Members are elected to the board after demonstrating their potential for leadership and public service. Most members are alumni of our programs, or in a few cases alumni of our sister institution Deep Springs College, a two-year college founded by L.L. Nunn in 1917, and are typically students or early-career professionals.

Membership is intended to be an educational program in its own right (indeed, our most challenging and enduring one), and members are said to be pursuing a course of education while on the board. That education involves service on one or more committees that plan and oversee TA’s operations during the year, as well as participating in our quarterly meetings, including a three day Convention each summer, at which we make all major budgetary and programmatic decisions collectively and democratically.
