TWS’ new president, Darren Miller, bangs the gavel for the first time as he brings to order his first Council Meeting and welcomes new council members, including Jim Ramakka, Evelyn Merrill and Vice President Carol Chambers. He also welcomes Colleen Hartel, the new Student Liaison to Council, and acknowledges past presidents Bruce Leopold, Rick Baydack and Gary Potts in the room.
Council reviewed subcommittee and ad hoc committee assignments, and members contributed a variety of suggestions for Council to consider during the upcoming year.
New TWS Council President Darren Miller outlined his top priorities for the year. One of those priorities will be to encourage TWS to play a greater role in the international community. He said the organization is considering membership in the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
