From the Wildlifer...
Happy New Year! I am looking forward to a productive, meaningful 2016 as we continue to positively impact Florida’s wildlife resources. Our new Executive Board and committee chairs are an enthusiastic, no-nonsense group that has already made great progress on several fronts that will propel us into the new year. To mention a few: We are in the process of improving our membership records database so that we can better use you and your skills, our greatest assets, to achieve the Chapter’s mission. (If you are unfamiliar with our mission, please go to www.fltws.org and read it. It is important.) We will also be able to more easily remind you to pay your membership dues!
Our membership committee recently sent out a survey to almost 1,500 wildlife professionals and students. The response was very good and we are using the results to help design future meetings and Chapter endeavors. Plans are well underway for our Spring 2016 meeting. Look at the Chapter website for the date, location, hotel information, and other important details. It’s going to be great!
