NYS Conservation Council Report: (per Charlie Parker NYS Conservation Council President)

 

The federation report stated the need for every sportsmen to support the New York State Conservation Council.  The “Council” is the oldest Sportsmen / Conservation groups that advocates for mainly for the New York State Sportsmen and Conservationists.  The Mad River Club is a strong supporter but we as individual sportsmen can do more.  There are two options that all should consider.  One is becoming a Guardian or Defender Member.  The other is for those that use Amazon. Sign up through Amazon Smile and select the New York State Conservation Council as a recipient, and for each purchase you make using Amazon Smile, a portion is donated to the NYS Conservation Council.  For information on either of the above ways to support the Council go to  http://www.nyscc.com/_index.php   NYSCC CONSERVATION EDUCATION COMMITTEE INVITES SPORTSMEN AND WOMEN INPUT At the recent NYSCC annual Spring/Legislative meetings in Herkimer, Conservation Education Committee chair Keith Tidball announced plans to survey hunters, anglers, trappers, and other outdoor recreationalists regarding their preferences for what specific issues or topics the committee should direct their focus upon. The survey is intended for wide distribution; all county federation members, sportsmen’s club members, and those interested in the out-of-doors are encouraged to participate. Here is the link to the web-based survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LBQKCSC   The ability to follow legislation concerning sportsmen can be a tedious and sometimes boring task.  But it is still important that we be aware, as best we can as to what is gong on in Albany Fortunately the New York State Conservation Council does a lot of the “following” for you. With the Council’s website much of that information is easily available to you.  Just go to http://www.nyscc.com/legislativeinformation.html or http://www.nyscc.com/legislativeinformation/memoandstatements.html and you can follow legislative bills and the current positions that the NYSCC has taken on various bills.   REMEMBER SUPPORT THE COUNCIL     Chuck Parker     One of the recent bills that was mentioned at the Last MRC Meeting was   MEMORANDUM IN OPPOSITION Bill #  S 7874   Kaminsky     No same as Title: Limits educational institution’s ability to authorize the possession of a weapon on school grounds to certain officers or agents of a law enforcement agency. This is a terrible bill that the Council strongly opposes. Fortunately at this time it is only a one house bill.  Visit http://www.nyscc.

The Financial Secretary shall be a member of the Financial Affairs Committee and the Membership Committee. The Financial Secretary shall collect all moneys Members owe the Club and issue each Member his or her Membership Card and Member and Guest Badge and shall maintain a current Roster of the Members, and be responsible for answering inquiries from prospective and newly elected Members, produce and deliver applications to prospective Members, deliver completed applications to the Board for action, and deliver maps and Keys to the Club Property to new Members. The roster shall set forth each Member’s name, number, address, phone number age and date of joining, after payment. Further, the Financial Secretary shall perform other duties as prescribed by the Board.

 

The highlighted change is to make it easier for the financial secretary to make deposits as the bank is in Pulaski and it is not always easy go get to the bank. NOTE: This is the second reading of the change IAW rules in our bylaws.
