President's Corner

Election Results

by John Shenot

At our January meeting, the membership elected several officers and at-large board mem-bers to one-year terms. All of the people elected were either incumbent board members or had previously served on the board. I want to thank everyone who volunteered for these leadership positions. Following the elections, and with the new board’s approval, I appointed chairpersons for most of the standing committees named in our chapter bylaws. Committee chairs also serve one-year terms and sit on the board of directors. We still have a few vacancies I would like to fill, but I’m confident that FCAS is poised for success in 2016 with the following leadership:

President/Field Trip Chair, John Shenot; President-Elect, vacant; Vice-President/Membership Chair, Liz Pruessner; Treasurer/Finance Chair, John Waddell; Secretary, Scott Cobble; At-large Director/Hospitality Chair, Hildy Morgan; At-large Director/Audubon Colorado Council Delegate, Bill Miller; At-large Directors, Alan Godwin, Ron Harden, two vacancies; Program/Public Relations Chair, Jessie Meschievitz; Conservation Chair, Barb Adams; Education and Publications Chairs, vacant.
