Chapter Annual Activities Report Reminder
Chapter Annual Activities Reports for FY 2015 were due on June 1. Thanks to all the chapters who submitted their reports on time! If your chapter has not submitted a report yet, please do so ASAP to assist with our end of the year organization-wide reporting, and to help us issue your subventions in a timely fashion. The updated forms were mailed out to all chapter presidents and delegates on March 24. Please contact Becky, , if you have any questions or would like the form resent to your chapter.

Chapter Pricing for CNPS Store Items
At the request of the CNPS Chapter Council, we have put together a list of all prices available for CNPS chapters when purchasing items from the CNPS Store for resale or other chapter use. This list has been posted in PDF version and as a sortable spreadsheet on the private administration section of the website. To access this page, go to the admin page of CNPS.org, click on the Panamint daisy logo in the left sidebar, and log in with username *** and password ***. You will see the links to download the price list on the right side of the page, beneath the link to download the CNPS logo files.

New Host Chapter Planning Manual for Chapter Council Weekends

With the help of the Chapter Council logistics committee, we have developed a brand new planning guide for chapters who would like to host a CNPS Chapter Council weekend! Click here to view the manual (it is also available from the admin page of CNPS.org). This extensive guide is intended to be very comprehensive, so don’t be intimidated by its length - it provides lots of referential details on the planning process that your chapter may not actually need, plus it is not a “one-size-fits-all” solution, as aspects of the Chapter Council weekend can always be changed and customized, and we’re always finding new ways to do things. If you have comments or suggestions on other things you'd like to see included in the manual, we'd love to hear them! Please e-mail your feedback to Becky at .

Next CNPS Quarterly Meeting

September 9-11, 2016
Morro Bay, CA

Hosted by the San Luis Obispo Chapter

Why should I attend the Quarterly Meeting?
1. You will connect with, and learn from, other CNPS members and staff from around the state
2. You get to contribute to important decisions that impact our organization during the Chapter Council session, and learn about the projects that CNPS staff are working on
3. Through social events and field trips, you will meet like-minded people and get to know a new area of the state - it's fun!

Hope to see you there!
