Our First Board Meeting!

Our first meeting was a success! Three board members were together in Arcata, California, the other four called in (hence the phone in the picture). Minutes are being typed up, but highlights of the meeting include:

  1. 501c3 Status Update – We have been approved by the IRS! State application comes next.

  2. Worked on developing our Vision-Mission statement.

  3. Approved the establishment of our bank account.

  4. Discussed improving our website and initiating supporter memberships.

  5. Discussed ways to connect with the national forests the trail crosses as well as looking toward creating MOUs with each forest.

  6. Set out Board Member goals for grant writing and fund raising.

  7. Established field work priorities for the future.
