The Autumn Board Meeting of the Connecticut Chapter was hosted by the Woodbridge Land Trust at the Center Building in Woodbridge. Special gratitude goes out to Dr. Robert Gregg and Dr. Philip Arnold of the Woodbridge Land Trust for making the arrangements and providing refreshments.
We had nine of eleven members present, a quorum and almost a full turnout. In attendance were: Pat Van de Kamp, Bill Adamsen, Gayle Kida, John Anderson, David Bingham, Robert Gregg, Philip Arnold, Jim Gage and Garret Smith. Special guests included Leila Pinchot, our New England Regional Science Coordinator. In addition, several members of the Woodbridge Land Trust attended, including Robert Fries, whose bucket truck helped with the National Science Foundation pollinations at Sleeping Giant this summer.
The full draft minutes are located in the documents repository and will be considered for approval at the next fall meeting. There were some significant reports and votes that should interest State Chapter members. I will gloss over them here, since they are available in detail in the previously described draft minutes. All votes were unanimous though two were with abstentions.
I thought it was a friendly and collegial meeting, yet we accomplished a phenomenol amount of work. I extend my deepest thanks to all the Directors for attending, and for the hard work put into accomplishing what we've accomplished to date, and setting of the vision for tommorrow.
Bill Adamsen, President
