As most of you know I will be out of the country when you have the next WAG meeting. This will be a very important meeting for the group's future. A short business meeting will be held at the begining. Your interim Board of Directors have prepared a set of bylaws for your consideration and approval to complete the formalization of this organization. As most of you know the group has officially been chartered as a non-profit corporation in Texas, we have secured our EIN number from the IRS and have opened a bank account to accept dues and contributions, and will have the nominatiing committee present a slate of directors for consideration. Of course, any and all nominations or suggestions will be considered. Please take the time to look over the incorporation papers (which were drawn to facilitate processing of 501 c 3 status with the IRS at a later date), the proposed bylaws and budget which have bee posted on the web site. If you go to the "More" tab at the top of the website and scroll down to files and choose it you will find the pdf's of what I presented above. I hope you all have a great turnout and get WAG off to a roaring start. Thanks to Virginia Fisher, Sue Wright, Karen McBride, Lee Hoy, Bary Noret, and all the others who have taken the lead on establishing a permanet entity for the group. Bring your check books to pay your dues.--Jim Hailey
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.
