I'm here to shake some bones and make some noise. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
When the idea of NASC was born and then put into action, we had a large and very positive response from the membership. Over time there has been a drop-off in interest.
I know that the NASC forum and Conservation Station isn't always a "hotbed of excitement." The rallying was good...the auction was fun and successful, but excitement isn't what its all about. Long-term COMMITTMENT is what its all about. Not forgetting because there is a lull in topics.
Even though the topics seem slow, anyone interested in supporting NASC needs to keep an eye on those forums on a regular basis so you know if anything is happening or not. It may be "not", but you gotta keep a toe in for when there IS something important being discussed.
There are several topics in both the Conservation Station and the NASC forum that need some participation.
There is a logo contest, a brochure to critique and several other ideas and questions being put forth for discussion.
We need INPUT--ideas, suggestions, criticisms...a voicing of your opinions. This is "for the people, by the people." But we need the people!
We need to get more organized so that as situations arise, we will be READY. Not scrambling around to get ready.
So please...anyone who offered support for NASC at its inception, please check out the forums, read what is being discussed and add your input so we can get rolling on some of these things.
Thanks to all who want to participate by voicing your ideas and opinions! Now get to those forums and do some reading!
