    Time to get rolling. I am trying to seperate things as we speak to keep some of the confusion down. We need to decide upon our name. I copy/pasted something from bugweeds post, because I couldn't say it any better myself (been a ROUGH weekend, sorry for not being more presant)

    So... without further ado, lets hear your thoughts.



    Need to get a vote going on what to call ourselves that is simple and to the point. I have suggested the "Sarracenia National Collection and Preservation Society." Conservation Through Stewardship (Trailer). Casper and I are pretty much in favor of this one as it sounds correct as to what we are about. But we need a name for ourselves, so vote on this name, or offer a better one if you can. We need to move in several ways at a time, and I have Snowy Falcon, and Mijako10 working on our coding system and plant tags associated with them. They are pretty smart, and I think it should work. That will be voted on too. In fact, no moves will be made until voting by the members of this new Society. You will have to make yourself known so that we may have a members list to go along with our Name.

    I still agree with the ealier post that "conservancy" may be a more suitable
    title as opposed to collection.(2 cents)

    Ok, so are you suggesting we use "Sarracenia National Conservancy and Preservation Society" instead? As soon as we get a few suggestions we will start a poll to actually vote. Unless otherwise objected, I think the voting process should last 1 week. Gives everyone time enough to read, digest, and decide what they prefer.

    SF,

    why the "First"? Is there to be a second? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif[/img]

    How about "Society for the Preservation of Sarracenias in Cultivation"?

    The same reason there are banks like "First National Bank". My reason is only to distinguish this program from the National Security Council (NSC) and other programs with similar initials. No big deal really.

    In a earlier post it was explained why "first" was submitted,I can't find it now
    but I do recall agreeing with the reasoning.As for the "cultivation" while "authentic" plants in cultivation should be the first propigated materials we draw from,WE may require LEGALY DOCUMENTED collections to insure we get the appropriate "snapshot" from certain endangered bogs."sarracinas in cultivation" kinda suggest to me and may mislead others to believe that the only plant material we posses is from cultivation.I do understand that once the society is in possesion of the material in "WILL" then be in cultivation this may be where the name is drawn from ,but we have to ask will the uninitiated
    understand this? I guess a short explanation will be inevateble regardless, just
    trying to keep it simple and to the point-JZ
    I always suspect everything is a trap....thats why I'm still alive
