Become a Board Member
by John Shenot
The big election is almost here! In less than three months we will be choosing new leadership. Yes, I said three months because, of course, I’m referring to the election of new officers and board members for FCAS.
At our annual meeting in January (which is part of our regularly-scheduled membership meeting and program), the members in attendance will vote for officers and board members to lead FCAS in 2017. The president is elected to a two-year term. All other positions are elected to a one-year term.
The current board of directors has approved a nominating committee that will seek to identify a slate of candidates to fill all of the positions on the 2017 Board. This committee consists of current FCAS Vice-President Liz Pruessner, Jessie Meschievitz, and Lynne Hull. They will announce the proposed slate of candidates in our December newsletter, but nominations also can be made from the floor by any member at our annual meeting. There are no pre-requisites for officers or board members, nor is there an expectation that all nominees will have conservation experience or birding expertise. If you would like to serve this organization as an officer or an at-large board member in 2017, or would like to suggest someone else you think would be good in such a role, please contact any of the nominating committee members. Contact information for Liz and Jessie can be found in the FCAS contacts on this page.
