Take KLT survey and see recording of Virtual Annual Meeting
Day: Nov 12
Time: 7:00 PM
Location: Virtual via Zoom
The Keweenaw Land Trust hosted it’s Annual Membership Meeting virtually this year.
Although we were disappointed that we were not be able to gather in person for our annual membership meeting, we are glad to share the latest updates on our conservation and stewardship projects. During the recording of this meeting, we discussed interesting developments and opportunities that 2020 has brought us, as well as elected new Directors as required by our bylaws.
One of the most important parts of our annual meeting is to gather your feedback on KLT priorities, lands and activities. Please take our member survey to give KLT valuable input.
Directors are limited to two consecutive three-year terms. After six years on the board, they must retire for at least one year. We are lucky this year that all of our board members are eligible to continue serving our organization!
If you would like to vote for Directors but are unable to join the virtual meeting, please send an email to Jill Fisher or call the office at 906-482-0820.
