GUEST SPEAKERS: Invasive Plant Patroller
Please help us welcome expert plant patrollers from Lake Stewards of Maine as guest speakers at the annual meeting on July 20, 2019.
The Invasive Plant Patrol (IPP) program promotes prevention, early detection and rapid response at the local level by providing training, educational materials, resources and technical support to groups and individuals across the State of Maine.
IPP 101 Workshops teach participants how to recognize the invasive aquatic plants on Maine’s “eleven most unwanted” list, and to distinguish these invaders from their native Maine look-alikes. A variety of advanced training opportunities are also offered which cover advanced native plant identification, manual control methods for dealing with infestations, and other helpful and informative workshops.

Proposed Bylaw Change
The following change to the Forest Lake Bylaws will be voted on at the annual meeting:
Article Six – Duties and responsibilities of officers:
SECRETARY: The Secretary shall keep a record of all proceedings of the Association and the Board and conduct such correspondence as the Board may direct. A file of correspondence shall be kept.
Treasurer and Secretary may be combined into one Treasurer/Secretary role at the direction and approval of the Board.
At the discretion of the Board of Trustees, the Secretary position can be split into two separate positions – a recording secretary responsible for taking and publishing meeting minutes, and a corresponding secretary responsible for communications necessary to the organization.
