The State Board has approved a new chapter for the Midland area to be known as the Chaparral Chapter.
The new chapter has not yet chosen a time and place for meetings. Burr Williams will serve as president of the chapter.
The Society currently has 33 active chapters and more than 2500 active members, according to former president Bill Hopkins.
For the first time in our history the Native Plant Society will conduct its State Board election over the Internet.
Candidates for office were chosen by our Nominating Committee, consisting of chair Lonnie Childs and members Pam Allison, Jan Hanz, Kay Jenkins, Ilse Meier, John Nikolatos and Carolyn Walden. You may also vote for a write-in candidate.
Members have until September 30 to cast their ballot. Elected candidates will take office at the Annual Meeting in October and serve a two-year term.
