The first steering committee consisted of the chair, Marion Edey, and seven others: David Brower, then president of FOE, Joe Browder, Gary Soucie, Douglas Scott, Michael McCloskey, Thomas Dustin, and George Alderson.

By 1990 LCV's board of directors had expanded to twenty-six, including representatives from Friends of the Earth/Environmental Policy Institute,* Environmental Action,* Environmental Defense Fund,* Natural Resources Defense Council,* National Audubon Society,* Sierra Club,* National Wildlife Federation,* Izaak Walton League of America,* and Clean Water Action Project.* Alden Meyer became executive director in 1986, replacing Marion Edey who had directed the League since its inception.
