It was obvious, even in the early voting, that some issues and projects were very high on members' priority lists. As a result, we have proceeded with action on some of these. On others we now have proposals for your approval/disapproval/comments. Still others rose or fell in the voting as more polls arrived. We are preparing proposals for those that rose to high priority. Complete results with the actual voting numbers are below the Summary.
Some issues and projects could have presented better. We viewed whether to have officers and directors as either/or with having members make decisions by way of online polls. Many members did not see one as excluding the other. Fortunately the results were very clear. Members will make the decisions and there will be no officers and directors.
We should have presented Printed Register as Online and Printed Register, but ourselves took the online portion for granted. A proposal for what now will be called the International Checklist is linked below. We also should have combined Meetings and Tours, as one usually includes or can include the other. Separated, they rate relatively low on the priority list and would have come in higher had we combined them. Since they don't rank high enough to demand immediate attention from WGI so we offer a proposal for your consideration linked below.
Members made a number of very good suggestions for future projects which we will outline soon. Quite a few members feel that conservation and preservation of natural wetlands and native water plants, and an effort to encourage members to appreciate and use natives in our ponds should be high on our list. We are working on plans to implement these ideas.
A number of you offered to work on various projects and we will be contacting you in the near future!
