COAC is seeking dynamic, forward looking leaders to grow the organization and assist in bringing together all Ohio Audubon chapters.
Council of Ohio Audubon Chapters (COAC) Updates
COAC, the Council of Ohio Audubon Chapters, of which Western Cuyahoga Audubon is a member, met virtually in November, December and January. Jackine Augustine, former President of COAC, has accepted a position as Executive Director of Audubon of Kansas. We congratulate Jackie on this awesome move, but are sad to see her go. Interim President of COAC will be Mark Demyan of Audubon Society of Greater Cleveland.
A couple of COAC Board positions are expiring at the end of June 2021. COAC is looking for a dynamic and forward-looking President to lead the organization and assist in bringing together all Ohio Audubon chapters. The Secretary position is also expiring at the end of June and will need to be filled. Roles of the Secretary are to keep detailed notes at the Chapter and Board meetings, send out Agenda for the Chapter and Board meetings which are done virtually, work with other Board members and Chapter representatives in communications. The Treasurer's position will be vacated in 2022, but a Treasurer's intern would be good to work with the present Treasurer to become familiar with the finances of the organization. Please send nominations for President, Secretary and Treasurer to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The COAC Board decided that the Chapter dues for the 2021-2022 Fiscal year (July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022) would be $75.00/year for Chapter Membership or $300.00/year for a Sustaining Chapter Membership. Individual people who would like to join as a member would be $20.00/year.
All are welcome to join the COAC virtual meetings. Audubon Chapters meet on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 PM and COAC Board meetings are the third Tuesday of each month, again at 7:00 PM. Meetings are held via Free Conference Call.
