Chapter Meeting

This will be a projects and planning meeting. 
If you want to get more involved in what we do, please try to attend.  If you have ideas on hiking events or trail projects, please try to attend.  Bill Gentry, our new Chair, has lots of ideas, but we need yours, too!

EDIT by Bill:  Hi All, yes I want a big turnout for this one as I plan to discuss objectives for the upcoming hiking season.   Your input is important.  Come to listen, learn and share!   Please try to make it if at all possible.  The outcome of this discussion will be pivotal in the direction of the chapter for the next year.

Anyone interested in becoming a FTA activity leader should attend.  I would especially appreciate input from anyone with experience in the following disciplines:  Fundraising, organizing events, desktop publishing, and forestry/plant biology.

Be sure to share any interesting hiking/event ideas.

Room reservation is UQFMKLE.

    Lots of good ideas presented. I will do what I can to help. I can work on some behind to scenes things so don't hesitate to ask. And I will look at taking on an AD role after some of my activities with other groups have ended.

    Bill, I think it would be a good idea to upload your PowerPoint presentation to the Meetup files area. It would be good to have it out there so it can accessed by members. You may also want to send out a general post to all members after it is posted for the benefit to those who did not attend.
    PS: Probably should do it as pdf file since not everyone has PP.

    Great meeting! Bill put a lot into his presentation and gave us a lot to work on. Cary is doing a great job of getting our maintenance hikes set up for the next season. Thanks for the sandwiches and cookies. Hope to see you all on the Trail soon.

    I liked the meeting room we had, and it was a nice change to have sandwiches and Tom's cookies. Good turnout and great discussion on future goals for the chapter. Many thanks to Bill and Cary for the time they both put into their powerpoint presentations. I'm fired up!

    We need cookies to go with sandwiches. Remember bring your own drink.

    The room has a "kitchenette", so we should be ok with food. I'll stop by FireHouse and bring some subs. Aaron, if you want to add some wings, that would be great. Let's say everyone bring your own beverage! Looking forward to seeing everyone!

    Do you think food is permitted in the conference room? If so I could get some chicken wings to add to Leslie's platter.

    Just want to say to the curious - all of our events are led by vetted Activity Leaders. This is not a huge committment on your part - just a willingness to lead a hike or event once a year. The more ALs we have, the more fun we can have! We also need help with finding speakers and publicity when we have special events. I hope we have a good turnout!
