2. QCWA Structure ad hoc Comm. report: John G.
This ad hoc committee recommends that QCWA form a Steering Committee (SC) to assist in governance of the QCWA. The SC would consist of 5 volunteers of the QCWA. Some of the functions of the SC would be to assist in management of funds, grants, bank accounts, organizational direction and continuity, and to recommend possible future organizational changes such as registering with NYS, membership, etc.
The following, who currently serve in key functions, were suggested as possible candidates for this committee, as well as anyone of our regular volunteers that would be interested in a SC position. The pool of candidates will select the five to initially serve on the SC:
Jack Caldwell, WAVE Sampling; Chris Eachus, Educational Outreach; Bill Fetter, Streamwalks; John Gebhards, QCWA Coordinator; Ted Kohlmann, Trees for Tribs; John McLaughlin, Enterococcus sampling; Kelly Morris, QCW Management Plan, Peter Smith, Water Resources; and Nick Tulve, Eel Counting.
