TU 710 Membership Meeting Notice: Tuesday October 28th, 2014
The October TU710 membership meeting will be held at our usual meeting location at Wehrspan Lake in southwest Omaha. We will be meeting in the atrium on the main level of the NRD building.
Each year we hold elections for the Officers and Board Members of Nebraska Trout Unlimited (TU#710). As a member of TU#710 you are most welcome to nominate another member or yourself for an Officer or Board position. Nebraska TU is blessed with over 400 members statewide, but, as with many organizations, only a small number of individuals are active participants in the organization. Perhaps many of you joined simply to support your sport with a few dollars that you spend for membership. Others have a desire to become more involved, or meet others who share their passion for fishing, fly-fishing or cold water habitats. Whatever your particular situation, becoming more involved has many side benefits…sharing fishing experiences and places to fish with those who share your passion, active involvement in stream restoration or education, or staying current with legislative or political issues which impact our streams or water quality.
We currently have three Board of Director positions open for nominations. We have two nominations. We are actively looking for one more person to step forward and assist in our decision making. Board Members are elected for three-year terms, with two Board positions elected each year.
Duties are as follows:
Board Members: attend monthly meetings and vote on motions brought before the Board. In addition, various Board Members or Officers serve in various positions of leadership, such as Stream Restoration Chair, Education Chair, Marketing Chair, Web Master, Legislative Chair, Fishing Trip Coordinator, Banquet Chair, etc. Any member of the Chapter can also hold these leadership positions.
Our 2014 elections will be held Tuesday, October 28th at the Papio-Missouri River NRD Bldg. at Chalco Hills. Our meeting starts at 7:00 for this event. We start with a short Board meeting, and will then procede to the elections and a short program. The program will be a discussion on the Nebraska Environmental Trust Grant applications, our annual fund raising banquet, 2015 fishing trip swuggestions, and plans for the Western Nebraska Chapter soon to form!
