Celebrating 50 Years of Birding in the Lower Columbia Basin and Around the World
1965 - 2015
Congratulations to our own Robin Priddy!
Recipient of the 2015 William Dutcher Award for the Pacific Flyway
Robin, current Past President of the Lower Columbia Basin Audubon Society, was honored by National Audubon with the 2015 William Dutcher Award for the Pacific Flyway. Robin leads the Sagebrush Songbird Survey, which is the largest Audubon citizen science project ever attempted in Washington.
“People like Robin truly make Audubon amazing. Her boundless energy and commitment to conservation amazes and inspires those around her. She demonstrates the power of a network like Audubon.”
— David Yarnold, Audubon President and CEO
A bylaws change was unanimously approved by the board at the Aug. 25 Planning/Board meeting as follows:
“Article VI, Section 2 as follows: “Section 2 – Slate of Nominees. The nominating committee shall nominate candidates for LCBAS Officers, Committee Chairs, and Directors-at-Large to succeed those whose terms of office expire at the next annual meeting. The Nominating Committee shall publish the slate of nominees at least 10 days prior to the annual May meeting.”
Since the annual meeting may be in a month other than May, this change makes this section of the bylaws consistent with other sections relating to LCBAS elections.
