Hello Fellow OBTU members:
This being my first formal message to our membership since I became chapter President in January, it will be brief.
I’m looking forward to engaging and working with more of you as we go forward. My primary goal is to expand our current membership participation supporting our mission and chapter activities. This participation can be in many forms—responding to requests for volunteering; providing feedback to us via a phone call, email or attending one of our monthly meetings; supporting our programs with financial donations; and taking action on environmental items we bring to your attention such as asking you to contact your local governmental representatives in support of “advocacy” actions.
I want to welcome our newest Board Member and Conservation Chair, Dave Carlson, our new Vice President Willie Beshire, and Treasurer, Jack Potts. I believe we have a good team in place to move the chapter forward.
Be sure to check your emails and our website periodically throughout the month for upcoming event dates, meetings and featured speakers. My future notes will be slightly more substantive and informative. Always feel free to contact me with questions, concerns or suggestions.
