Please see attached for meeting agenda and a copy of the thank-you letter from Archbold Biological Station.

Please post replies to this Forum post to report on your chapter's news / events / projects / problems / questions

Gail Parsons is assigning everyone some "homework" in preparation for this meeting.  Please find a copy of your chapter's Bylaws, review them and bring them to the meeting.  We will be breaking into small groups to review and discuss your Bylaws.

Were there any surprises?  Do they need to be revised?  Make notes to share with the group.

Citrus Chapter report:

-We offered to survey the plants along the YMCA nature trail, as a first step towards our chapter being able to use the trail.
-We had a member offer her garden to new members who wanted to come to dig native plants up.
-We held a plant sale in conjunction with a wildflower lecture at a local State Park. This was the first time we took credit card payment (via Square), which was about a third of the sales.
-3 members attended the Annual Conference.

-We started a new endeavor to hold a member only activity once a month during our summer break. June, was a carpool to a home tour - there was some interest but it didn't happened.
-I represented FNPS for a Land Management Review at Cedar Key Scrub Preserve State Park, and attended a FPAN Heritage Monitoring Scout workshop, to learn what I should be looking for at cultural sites on LMRs.

-We had a member only crafting day where participants could create some native/nature themed crafts. We had several attend and gained one Family membership, so that a new member could bring her sister and granddaughter.

-I represented FNPS for a Land Management Review at Goethe State Forest.
-We have scheduled a member only "Morning at the Extension Garden", where members may come between 9-12 for any/all of weeding and rehoming native plants from one of our demo-gardens, a workshop on plant propagation, and then a potluck social.
