Incorporation of Williamson Audubon Group as a Texas Non-profit Corporation was accomplished on August 25, 2010 so step one has now been completed. Furthermore, a filing for a Federal Tax ID number has been sumbmitted. This is necessary for us to open a bank account. And a proposed set of Bylaws will be considered at a meeting of the interim Board of Directors on September 16. Interim directors are Jim Hailey, Sue Wright, Karen McBride, Sue Tichy, Barry Noret & Virginia Fisher. Copies of the incorporation documents and the proposed Bylaws have been posted on the website for all of you to review and make suggestions. The proposed Bylaws are very comprehensive and are intentionally so to allow WAG to grow and cover most contingencies without the necessity of revising them at a later date. Anyone interested in attending the meeting contact me -- Jim Hailey -- and I will provide you the location and time. To view these documents go to the top of your webpage and select more and choose files from that drop down. You should be able to open and view all of them.
WAG members will be able to vote to approve, amend or disapprove of the final Bylaws approved by the Board at the next meeting in October.
Mission: Williamson Audubon Group promotes the appreciation of birds by sharing knowledge and experience.
To accomplish our mission, WAG will hold bi-monthly field trips from September through May and provide four evening programs during the year. Those persons interested in birding at all levels of expertise are encouraged to join us. We especially encourage beginners.
On this website you can share pictures, check the calendar for upcoming events, participate in discussions and contact fellow members. We encourage the sharing of unusual sightings, the posting of bird lists from your times in the field, and your suggestions for activities for the group. Our goal is to provide a forum as well as have fun and enjoy all of nature with a focus on birds.
