Deep Fork Audubon
board meeting minutes, 23 February 2013
Recorded by Donald Winslow
Attending were Donald Winslow, Deane Carlberg, and Becky Carlberg.
Deane reported that our account balance is now somewhat over $600. We will need $400 of that to apply for 501(c)3 status.
Donald, Deane, and Becky will serve as the Nominating Committee for upcoming elections of boardmembers and officers. The Committee has developed an initial slate and will contact potential candidates for availability. Rather than plan a membership meeting in March to announce the slate, we will announce the candidates over email.
Br. Damian Whalen has marked up a copy of the application for 501(c)3 status, showing the sections we will need help with. He has found someone who is willing to help us with those sections.
There is a program on monitoring bird nests at Martin Nature Park in Oklahoma City on the afternoon of 2 March 2013. Deane and Becky are planning to participate from our chapter.
We discussed the possibility of asking Mike and Mary Ann Stevens to talk with us about their recent birding trip in Costa Rica at our annual membership meeting in April. Donald will contact Mary Ann.
After our meeting we had coffee at Sips and then headed out to Lake Stanley Draper to watch woodcocks. We were rewarded with three displaying male "timberdoodles". See the blog post and grainy video at http://deepfork.org/blog/?p=2453.
