Wendy Gardner announces that although the SRM summer and fall tours were put on hold this year because of Covid-19, there is still a lot of great range research being conducted and SRM members that would love to stay connected and informed. So the BC Chapter has decided to host a webinar series in fall 2020 starting Sept 22 and running for 6 weeks on Tuesdays (alternating between 12pm and 7 pm PT each week). The webinar series is to showcase the research of young professionals and students in the field of Range Management in the PNW Section. Each 30 minute webinar will feature one, 15 minute presentation, followed by time for questions and discussions. If you are interested in presenting your research, please send an abstract and your preference for dates to BC Chapter SRM by August 7th. Once the schedule is filled we will be sharing details with the PNW membership on how they can log-in to attend any of the talks. We look forward to “seeing” you virtually this fall.
The PNW Section will be holding a virtual Annual General Meeting in Oct 2020. At that meeting the elections for the new Board of Directors will be made. Past Section President, Wendy Gardner, is helping with the succession planning and is making a call for nominations for the available positions.
The positions that we have available are:
- Two Director Positions – each a 3 year term
- 2nd VP – this is a 1 year term but then transitions into 1st VP (1 year) and finally President (1 year)
Director duties (summarized from the bylaws): The Board manages the affairs and funds of the Section. It takes measures to disseminate technical knowledge and meeting announcements. It meets annually each fall and at other times and places as it shall direct or at the call of the President, which has been approximately quarterly.
2nd VP duties: Fulfills duties of the President when the President and 1st VP are absent or otherwise incapacitated. Attends all meetings of the Board, which have been approximately quarterly.
For nominations or questions contact Wendy Gardner. You may put your own name forward or nominate others. If you nominate another person, please share their email contact information so that we can follow-up and make sure they are willing to let their name stand.
