Earlier this month saw not quite the end of an era, but perhaps more a changing of the guard. Our secretary, Erik has taken a step back after six years at the helm and not forgetting previous active roles in the organisation. We welcome Emma on board who has stepped in to take on the role. Thanks for stepping up. More on that in coming posts and summary of the AGM. Contact details to follow.
I must take time to add a personal thanks to Erik for the service he has completed. His advice and guidance when I took on the role of chair has been most welcome and appreciated and I've had the pleasure of attending many bioblitz or community events with Erik, through damp and occasionally roastin' conditions. Thanks for those enjoyable days. Glad to say that Erik plans to remain an active CARG member, leading a number of projects and I'm looking forward to continuing this years surveys, now that the late snow has receded.
Hoppy Surveys everyone
