UNWC to Hold Annual Meeting

unwcThe Upper Nehalem Watershed Council will hold its annual meeting on Saturday, May 17, from 10 am to 2 pm at the Vernonia Grange, 375 North Street in Vernonia.

The UNWC Council is a community-wide group established in 1997 to restore and preserve the Upper Nehalem Watershed.   Anyone from the local area who attends the Annual Meeting is considered a member and is entitled to vote on matters presented at that meeting.  Lunch will be served.

The UNWC Board of Directors invites anyone interested in the health of the Upper Nehalem watershed to attend the meeting.    The agenda includes a review and discussion of the UNWC’s mission, vision, and watershed priorities over the next three years.  This discussion will include information on the health of the watershed, which areas of the watershed have been the target of recent projects, and where the UNWC needs to focus our limited funding in the future.

Council members will also vote on proposed amendments to the bylaws and financial policies.  Most of the proposed amendments are required by the UNWC’s primary funder, the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board (OWEB).  Proposed revisions to the financial policies include a new policy on contracted services.

The Council will also vote in new members of the Board of Directors.

For more information or a copy of the proposed bylaws and financial policies, contact Maggie Peyton, Executive Director, at 503-429-0869 or maggie@nehalem.org.
