Our New Board of Directors
by John Shenot
At the FCAS annual meeting on January 11, the membership elected a slate of officers and directors-at-large to one year terms. (I will be serving the second year of my two-year term as President, so that office was not up for election this year.) Following the election, and with the approval of the newly elected Board of Directors, I appointed several people to chair some of our standing committees. I’m delighted that the following volunteers will join me in leading FCAS throughout 2018: President-elect, vacant; Vice President, Liz Pruessner; Treasurer, Joe Polazzi; Secretary, vacant; At-large Directors, Scott Cobble, Alan Godwin, Ron Harden, Bill Miller, Harry Rose, Helmut Retzer; Conservation, Bill Miller; Membership, vacant; Education, Barb Patterson; Finance, vacant; Program, Jessie Meschievitz; Field Trips, Sirena Brownlee; Publications, vacant; Public Relations, vacant; Hospitality, Chandriee Davis; Audubon Colorado Council Delegate, Bill Miller.
We still have a few vacancies to fill. Please contact me if you have interest in volunteering. You can also contact me or the listed chairperson if you would like to serve on one of our committees.
FCAS—and I mean all of us—are indebted to two outstanding volunteers who stepped down from service on our board in January. Hildy Morgan spearheaded our hugely successful silent auction in 2017, which enabled us to balance the books without raising membership dues. And John Waddell completed a stint of many years serving as FCAS Treasurer. If you see Hildy or John, thank them!
