As we prepare for 2016, I wanted to express my best holiday wishes and to give you updates on a few CCMGA matters.
During the December business meeting, the proposed revisions to the CCMGA by-laws were approved by unanimous vote of the members present. These revisions are a result of WVMG’s increased service and education requirements for new and recertifying members. The revised by-laws are posted to our website in the “About CCMGA” section.
Debbie Martin and Jane Wilson have done a great job of putting a Master Gardener class together. The classes will meet in the Fellowship Hall of Enslow Park Presbyterian Church on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 – 9:30 pm beginning on January 5. Jane and Debbie want to welcome any member who is available for one or more classes to come to assist or to earn education hours. This is a great opportunity to earn service or education hours,. A copy of the class schedule is posted to our website. Please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to sign up to volunteer for one or more classes.
2016 Meeting Schedule
The meeting schedule for 2016 has been finalized with a great lineup of educational speakers. A copy of our meeting schedule is posted in the “About CCMGA” section of our website.
Please remember that your 2016 dues can now be paid to our treasurer, Debbie Martin. If you have not already done so, please send your $16 membership dues to CCMGA, PO Box 7661, Huntington, WV 25578-7661.
The “Recipes” section of our website has been replaced with a “Gardening Education” page for the MGITs as well as current members. Presenters at the Master Gardener class as well as monthly Master Gardener meetings can have materials such as handouts or links posted to the site. Please take a look at the new section of our site and let me know what you think.
The 2015 minutes, treasurer’s reports and meeting schedules will soon be moved to an “Archives” page where the documents will still be available to members but will make way for 2016’s information.
I will look forward to seeing everyone at our February 20th meeting or better yet, at one of the upcoming MGIT classes.
