CVATC Annual Membership Meeting/Potluck Dinner
CVATC's 2019 annual membership meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 20th at the Unitarian Universalists Church, 2 Forge Road, Boiling Springs. The potluck will begin at 6:00 p.m., followed by elections and a presentation.
All of the club's officers and directors whose terms expire this year are eligible for another 2-year term, and all have agreed to be nominated for re-election (although a couple of them would be willing to step aside if others would like to fill a position). If you would like to nominate someone for any of the open positions, please send your nomination to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 13th. According to our bylaws, no nominations will be taken from the floor at the meeting on March 20th. The following folks are nominated for the open positions that all currently hold:
President - Kevin Shannon
Vice President - Bill McCormick
Secretary - Jonathan Heilman
Director - Mike Bowman
Director - Skip Klein
Director - Christine Lauriello
As a heads-up, in 2020 and 2021, most of the club's officers and directors will have served the maximum number of terms permitted by our by-laws; therefore, we will be looking for several members to volunteer to serve in these positions on our Board. If you have any interest at all in stepping up into a leadership role with CVTAC, I recommend that you attend one of our Board meetings to get familiar with what we do.
We will be showing Penn's Woods, Cradle of Conservation, a WITF documentary that features Pennsylvania's famous environmental pioneers, who not only helped restore the Commonwealth's environment that had been badly degraded by the Industrial Revolution of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, but also helped shape the national conservation and environmental movements of the twentieth century.
Cindy Dunn will be on hand to talk about Gov. Wolf's proposed bond issue program, Restore Pennsylvania, it would benefit PA's state parks and forests plus address various environmental issues.
