Bill Glecos will be reporting on his attendance at the recent Wild Trout Summit. Also, he will go over the Allegheny National Forest Spawning Survey being sponsored by Trout Unlimited and the US Forest Service that will take place on November 12th. Meeting to be held at 9:30 am in Sheffield PA to provide training on Redd Identification and to distribute supplies. After that, teams will then travel to their assigned stream sections to conduct their surveys.
Working in teams of two, it will require hiking and/or wading sections of small streams in the forest, identifying redds, taking GPS coordinates for their locations and recording your data. Hiking/wading distance will range from one to three miles and may include some rugged sections.
After the business portion of the meeting, Bill will give a slide show of his recent trip to Montana and fishing the Blackfoot River.
TU National is now requiring a position of "financial reviewer" be filled in each chapter. Essentially, here is what that position does:
1) Receives a copy of the chapter bank account statements on a monthly basis via email
2) Confirms the transactions and the amounts on statements bywhat is reported by the Treasurer.
3) Reports to the Board of Directors any discrepancies in #2
I'd like to have someone step forward who physically makes most meetings we have every year, it will just make the process easier. That person will need to know how to send and receive email and attachments as this will be the principal lines of communicating with me, the Treasurer, and the Board of Directors. This would take 5-10 minutes a month, tops, in my estimation.
Please let Chapter President Erik Cronk know if you are interested in filling this position at firstname.lastname@example.org
