We are announcing that nominations for the North American Sarracenia Conservancy's (NASC's) Board of Directors are open!
The voting meeting is the annual Member's Meeting that is open to the public for voting, Tuesday, January 14th, 2010. The meeting starts at 8 p.m. CENTRAL time and is held via Skype. If you'd like to be present for nominations/voting, please email any Board member with your Skype account name so we can add you to the Skype list. Email addresses can be found on our web site: nasarracenia.org.
My Skype ID is pakmac2 if anyone should wish to contact me for more information on the meetings.
If you or anyone you know would be interested in running for a position, please post your nominations here or email nominations to the Board (via the NASC website). Each nomination should be accompanied by a statement as to the nominee's qualifications for a position.
We encourage you to participate in the nomination and voting process. Without volunteers, who give freely of their time and skills all over the world, we surely would be a much diminished world.
Head of Public Relations and Education

Member at Large
And, as always, we welcome volunteers. We can always use help with the newsletter (articles!), Sarracenia location surveys, education development, fund-raising, etc. Make an offer and we'll find you a "job". :-)
In this tough world, it's going to take a lot of hard work to protect our wetlands and the future of Sarracenia. We've got to show the public the lands and plants MATTER!
Let's make 2010 a very progressive year for NASC and conservation!
p.s. Don't forget to start those cuttings or divisions for the 2010 NASC Auction! You all make such a valuable contribution to conservation through your generous donations.
