Hello Everyone,
As a Director at Large and my Chapter Rep, I am posting a document which simply reviews some of our chapter's efforts in the hope that a few of the topics will inspire others to reach out in ways that are perhaps unfamiliar.
When something sticks it is a great day! Some years certain outreach efforts get more traction than others and it often depends on who is in charge and who you know.  The point is to keep pressing on!  Thank you all! Wendy Poag

There have been numerous inquiries from chapters about the coverage provided by the FNPS insurance policy.  Marlene Rodak of Coccoloba Chapter has been in contact with our insurance agent and we will discuss the results of those discussions at the Retreat.

For your information, please find attached the FNPS policy documents:

- FNPS Insurance Policy
- FNPS Directors and Officers coverage
- FNPS Volunteer Accidental Death and Dismemberment Benefits coverage

The Web Team very much needs people.  We need someone to work with chapters to teach them the use of GetSimple.
And we would benefit from someone with good javascript, php, and css skills.
If you know of such people who would be interested in sharing their talents, please let me (Shirley Denton) know.

The following suggestions have been made by members of the Landscape committee;

1. Combine institutional, industrial, and transportation under commercial category for awards consideration to simplify process.
2. Delete entry fees which may be inhibiting entries for award consideration.

Hello To You All,
I have attached a proposed job description for the Executive Director.  This is a full-time employee position that the Executive Committee thinks will help move FNPS into the future.  President Bowman will lead the discussion on the topic with assistance from Pete Rogers and Susan Carr.  I unfortunately will not be able to attend due to a family conflict.

FNPS has also hired a replacement for Stacey Matrazzo.  We now have Maran Hilgendorf as our Sabal minor editor.  We renewed contracts with Sue Mullins (lobbyist) in Dec 2017, Sarah Garcia (social media support) in Jan 2018, and Cammie Donaldson (membership support) in Jan 2018.  We have entered into a six month contract with Juliet Rynear to assist with our transition from a contract administrative support to our full time Executive Committee employee.

Thank you
Don Spence, PhD
