The Native Plant Society of Texas operates through its members as volunteers, each serving in their area of interest or skill set towards achieving the Mission and Vision of the organization. But to understand what is really going on behind the scenes and be "in the know", come to a Board meeting and find out. Note: you will only be an observer as discussion and voting is limited to Board members. So don't worry, you won't be asked to start volunteering. Just come, listen in, to find out more about how this nonprofit organization works. At a later date, IF you feel so inclined, you could get started by volunteering at the local level. Because the organization is made up almost exclusively of volunteers, the State Board meetings are held quarterly and the location is rotated around the state to ease the travel requirements by State Board members and allow different chapter members to see what is happening at the State level. So, don't miss out, the next State Board meeting will be held in Fort Worth, TX at the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens on January 20, 2018.
Note that two of our North Central members serve on the State Board, so you will see some friendly faces at the State Board meeting and have someone to chat with during the breaks. Kim Conrow serves as the President Elect and Suzanne Tuttle serves as the Environmental Liason.
In addition, local chapter board meetings are held by the North Central Chapter on the 4th Tuesday of the month at the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens in the Trellis room. Any paid member is welcome to attend a board meeting.
The next North Central Chapter Board meeting will be held at the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens (our regular meeting place for both board meetings and membership meetings) on January 9, 2018 at 6:30 pm. The North Central Chapter covers Fort Worth, Arlington, the Mid-Cities and all the surrounding communities.
