Happy New Year guys!

I was on vacation for the past two weeks and wasn't checking FHF. I just read all the recent posts about CA Chapter Officers, and I'm looking forward to serving as President! I'd like to serve at least two years, possibly more, if you'll have me. President Hinds leaves some big shoes to fill, but I'll do my best to keep our projects going and to uphold our Chapter's good reputation.

Our 2017 Officer list is as follows:
Pres - Jeff Nordland
VP - Matt Gruen
Conservation Officer - Lawrence Erickson
International Board Member - John Lauermann
Education Specialist - Nathan Smith
Secretary - Dave Zeldin


I'll put together a post outlining my vision for our Chapter sometime soon.


Here's a quick preview of some of the things I'm thinking about:
- holding a Chapter Meeting soon
- developing a Chapter member Contact Info list
- creating a plan to recruit new contributors to NAFHA and HERP
- updating the NAFHA website
- preparing a Calendar of Events for 2017
- studying the newly revised CA Species of Special Concern list to help focus our Chapter's efforts
- using social media sites for communication and promotion

I'm really enthusiastic about this group of officers! We're going to make 2017 a great year.

All the Best,

Jeff Nordland

Thanks to you, Jeff, and all of the other officers who have stepped up to the plate (again). The year 2017 promises to be a very successful one for our chapter and also the HERP database.

A Happy New Year to everyone from me and Nicholas!

Robert
