CBAS Officer Election Meeting

The Coastal Bend Audubon Society will hold its annual Officer Election Meeting at the B&J's Pizza at 6335 SPID, on Tuesday, August 8th, at 7:00 PM

Every year, the 4 officer positions – President, VP, Secretary, and Treasurer-  at CBAS are elected by the membership.  Anyone is allowed to run and elections will take place during the meeting on July 5th. 

Descriptions of officer positions are as follows:

President - The president serves as president of the society, chairman of the Board, and serves as an ex-officio member of all committees.  The president also performs all other duties associated with the position. 

Vice-president - The vice-president assists the president in the carrying out of duties and serves in the place of the president if the president is absent from meetings.  .

Secretary - The secretary keeps records of all proceedings at chapter meetings and keeps records of all chapter correspondence.  

Treasurer - The treasurer has custody of the chapter's funds and disburses the funds as ordered by the Board.  The treasurer also compiles regular financial reports for the board and an annual report for National/Texas Audubon.  

If you would like to send in a nomination for an officer position, please email coastalbendaudubon@gmail.com, however, last-minute nominations are welcome at the Election Meeting up until voting commences. 

If you are not interested in running for one of the 4 officer positions but would still like to volunteer for the club, we are always in need of members to help out with efforts including but not limited to:

Development/Fundraising – Need help organizing and planning fundraising events like our annual Big Day Event.    

Education – Need help building and developing our education component to more effectively reach out to the public and our youth.

Field Trip - We are always looking for more help in this department as far as organizing and conducting field trips/bird walks.

Sanctuary – Need help with the management and promotion of our North Bay Sanctuary.

Media/PR – If you are skilled in the arts of social media, IT services, etc., the expertise would be highly beneficial. 

General –  Need general help with various committees and initiatives throughout the year.

The Coastal Bend Audubon Society is a member-driven organization, so if you have ideas on how to better the Society or have a particular direction or initiative you would like to see the club move forward with, get involved!  

Please come vote for the CBAS officers for the upcoming year!

If you have any questions about the election, how to volunteer for the Coastal Bend Audubon Society, or would like to nominate someone for a position please email Owen Fitzsimmons at coastalbendaudubon@gmail.com.

Thanks and have a wonderful summer!
