The founding directors of the Byrne Creek Streamkeepers Society met tonight for the first time. We've incorporated as a British Columbia non-profit association after more than ten years of functioning on an informal basis.
The new executive is: President, Paul Cipywnyk; Vice President, Frank Williams; Treasurer, Dave Burkholder; Secretary, Abby Schwarz; Director at Large, Maho Hayashi; Director at Large, Joan Carne.
The board passed a policy to create the position of Past President to ensure continuity. This is not an official executive position, but more an honourary one. We designated Joan Carne as the founding Past President in recognition of her 10+ years of chairing the group to this point.
The society membership fee was set at $5.00 annually. Dues will be payable from the September 2010 regular monthly meeting.
The board passed a motion to designate Bert Richardson, Bob Fuller, and Lloyd Longeway as honourary life members of the society in recognition of their founding efforts with the Vancouver Angling & Game Association to clean up Byrne Creek and initiate restocking of its fish populations.Posted by Paul at June 28, 2010 10:28 PM
