Pond Management Committee members are completing final
revisions of the new pond management manual. We are on
track to complete this process and make this new manual
available to all before our January meeting. The new manual
will address several new management topics, provide a wealth
of reference resources, and continue to offer professional
advice for anyone seeking this information. I would like to
thank committee members Greg Conley, Dr. Fran Gelwick,
Fred Janssen, Ya-Sheng Juan, Bob Lusk, Dr. Michael Masser,
Charlie Munger, Peter Schaefer, Dr. John Taylor, and John
Tibbs for their contributions to this process.
IT IS TIME TO VOTE ONLINE
BY JOHN MOCZYGEMBA
First I would like once again to thank Paul
Hammerschmidt (TPWD, Austin) and his staff for handling
the mail-out ballots for the past five years. They did a great
job. It showed in the numbers of membership that voted, over
60%. We are going to try to increase the membership
involvement by going high tech and vote online. To be an
eligible voter you must be a registered member, so make sure
your dues are paid up. Fred Janssen, our Web site developer
and manager, has come up with a voting web page. It can be
found at www.sdafs.org/tcafs/index.htm . To vote, go to the
Texas Chapter web site and find the voting link. There is one
on the meeting web page. You will need a PIN, which will be
emailed or mailed to you in next few weeks, to get into the
voting web page. Once in the voting web page, you will find
a link to the candidates' biographies. After you have
reviewed the candidates' qualifications and ideas for the
Chapter, go to the voting area and make your choice. There
will be a drop down menu for the office and then a drop down
menu to select the candidate for that office. Click your choice
for each office. Then you are through. I have emailed most
of the membership to verify their email addresses. There are
about 100 good addresses. If you have changed your email or
mailing address recently, let me know so I can get your PIN to
you. For those who do not have access to the internet and
want to vote early, you can contact me for a ballot. There will
be a voting area at the meeting for those who did not get to
vote early. It will be near the registration table. We will have
a list of the early voters for the early voting prize to be given
at the business meeting. We will announce the newly elected
officers at the business meeting, also.
This year we will vote on President-elect and
Secretary/Treasurer. The candidates for President-elect
are Tim Bonner (Texas State University, San Marcos) and
Deborah Wade (Texas Parks & Wildlife Department,
Inland Fisheries Division, Athens). The candidates for
Secretary/ Treasurer are Mike Brice (Texas Parks &
Wildlife Department, Inland Fisheries Division, Marshall)
and Robert Mauk (Texas Parks & Wildlife Department,
Inland Fisheries Division, Wichita Falls). So go to the
voting page, review their qualifications and make your
decision. It is that easy, so vote early, but only once.
My contact information is:
Texas Parks & Wildlife Department
Inland Fisheries Division, District 2A
Lake Texoma Fisheries Station

Attention members - we are still looking for candidate
nominations for awards in the areas of administration, culture,
education, management, research, technical support, student
