November Annual Business Meeting
November 12, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Please join us for our Annual Business meeting on Tuesday, November 12, 2019 in Mershon Hall at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. Linda Fraser will be our speaker for the event. As one of the original GNPS members, she’ll share some of her memories of our formation 25 years ago. She’ll also talk about her botanical illustration of the oakleaf hydrangea flower – it was used to form the GNPS logo. She’ll finish up with a bit about her beautiful artwork celebrating native plants and the critters that visit them. To reach Mershon Hall: turn LEFT out of the parking garage and follow the sidewalk (we will post signs) to Mershon Hall.
Read more about Linda at her website, see some of her artwork there (each one has a story!) and fall in love with these slices of Georgia flora and fauna like so many of us have over the last 25 years. (Photo at left is from Linda’s website)
Since it’s our annual business meeting, we’ll have a bit of business to cover. Plant of the Year voting will wrap up that night and if the vote isn’t a tie, we’ll announce the winner that night. In addition, we have new by-laws to approve. Members – check your email about 2 weeks in advance (by Oct 29) for a link to the proposed by-laws.
Fun stuff: We’ll have some of the anniversary panels created from our 20th anniversary available for a walk down memory lane. We’ll also have a selection of retro t-shirts for sale at a retro price! Before we started putting the plant of the year on our t-shirts, we had shirts emblazoned with the GNPS logo on the front. They’ll be available in short-sleeve forest green (unisex sizes) and cardinal flower red (ladies cut) for the way-back price of $10. Only a limited quantity will be available so coming to the meeting will be your best chance to get one! We’ll also have a seed swap. Bring your extras labeled with Latin and common names. Extras available to anyone even if you don’t bring any.
