CNPS 2016-2017 State Election Cycle Announcement

August 28, 2015

Hello all CNPSers,

The 2015 Election cycle for 2016 - 2017 State Offices opens today. 2015 elections will be held for the CNPS Chapter Council Representatives and certain Board of Directors Officers. These two governing bodies, working together, create policy and provide direction that helps CNPS accomplish its mission.

CNPS has a very democratic election procedure. Any CNPS member in good standing can self-nominate with a letter of support from their local chapter board or the support of five CNPS members. Positions open this year for self-nomination on the CNPS Board of Directors include President, Secretary, three Directors, and two Chapter Council Representatives, one for a two-year term, another for a one-year term. Council positions are currently filled ; 2016 will be the second year of the current Officers' two-year terms.

TheseĀ  elected positions offer CNPS members a unique opportunity to guide our organization in protecting California's native plants.

If you have questions you'd like to discuss about any of these openings, please contact me at .

David Bigham

CNPS Vice President
