| | PAPAS Meeting 1/5/14 - Officer Elections & Planning
A new year of PAPAS is also ahead of us and the first meeting of the new calendar year is this upcoming Sunday, January 5. Normal meeting time & place (Oddball Aquatics @ 2 pm).
The beginning of the calendar year is an important time for the PAPAS club for several reasons. First of all, this will mark the beginning of a new membership year and we ask that everyone please consider renewing your PAPAS membership. The revenue generated from membership dues helps to cover the expenses of providing food and beverage at each of our meetings.
Second of all, the new membership year also marks the time to elect new officers for the club as well as give everyone a chance to provide feedback and suggestions. All of our presentations, speakers and activities are the result of members feedback and suggestions. Now is the time to let everyone know what interests them and suggest ways to make this a better organization.
Finally, the officers of PAPAS would like to thank everyone for their generosity. Although a lot of the organization of the meetings is the result of the officers time and effort, the success of the group is much more dependent upon every one of its members. Members are the ones that (1) Bring in plant cuttings for auction, (2) bring dining ware to the meetings (3) help each other out with planted aquarium problems and (4) make these meetings a pleasure to attend. We hope to see everyone @ the next meeting and look forward to the PAPAS 2014 year.
