Business:

  • Mark has been exchanging e-mails with another property owner in North Carolina for another potential reintroduction. These would be Sarracenia rubraS. flavaS. purpureaDrosera capillaris, and Dionaea muscipula that we have in our ex-situ conservation program sourced from nearby this location. More information will be available soon as we continue our discussions with the land owner.
  • Vic will look into what needs to be done in order to fulfill a seed request for a member in Australia.
  • A motion was made to amend the growers agreement to bring it in line with our recent conversations on what growers can and cannot do with additional plant propagules after meeting NASC goals. Vic proposed the updated document. After a brief discussion, a vote was taken and it was unanimous to adopt the changes. The updated document will be posted shortly and the changes will be summarized on the main page of our site.
  • A motion was made to nominate Heather Williams as the Secretary to fill the vacant seat. The motion was seconded and Heather accepted the nomination. The motion was put to a vote and passed unanimously by all attending Board members. We welcome Heather Williams and thank her for stepping into the Secretary position! We look forward to working together.
