Volume 29 (1) Spring Issue March 2003
I hope all who attended the annual meeting had a
great time. We set a new record in attendance and, I
believe, in quality papers and posters. Let's do even
better next year!
Moody Gardens was a classy setting and their staff
really worked with us to make the meeting happen.
Putting the meeting on was quite a chore, but I was
helped greatly by Jay Rooker, Debbie Wade and Paula
Hawkins. Jay Rooker and Tim Bonner did a great job
with the program, Brian Van Zee and David DeLeon
really scored on the raffle and auction items and Bart
Durham and crew provided the usual deserving group
of award recipients.
Rather than have the President-Elect start from
scratch each year and try to anticipate all the twists and
turns of putting on a meeting, we have decided to create
an ad hoc committee to aid the President-Elect. It will
be composed of those who deal in various ways with
the meeting each year: Secretary/Treasurer,
Membership Chair, and Editorial Chair. This "group"
knowledge and experience should be especially helpful
when we put on the Southern Division meeting in 2006.
Once again the question of why we have our
meeting when we do came up (it does every year at
every meeting). I thought it might be interesting to take a
poll of the membership as to what the most desirable
time for a meeting would be. Pick your favorite: 1)
January, 2) September, or 3) Other and e-mail me your
vote at gary.garrett(@tpwd.state.tx.us.
Lastly, Debbie Wade has graciously agreed to take
over the newsletter duties from Robert Mauk. Thanks
for the great work Robert and thank you Debbie for
continuing to serve the Texas Chapter in so many ways.
170 members attended the annual meeting in
Galveston this year, our highest attendance ever!
Here’s what’s next.
