As we are in the final few months of 2013, the Save the California Delta Alliance would like to thank all you who have contributed to the cause this year – supporting the Save the Delta Charity Golf Event, volunteering to man booths at various events, and those who got on the bus to Sacramento. A special thanks to the volunteers who went door-to-door making sure our lawn signs were visible throughout Discovery Bay, north in Clarksburg and along highways in-between. Plus all others who are working to stay informed via our newsletters.
The Bay Delta Conservation Plan (BDCP) Environmental Impact Report (EIR) was delayed until November 15th and possibly later due to the government shutdown. Once it is released, there will be a 120 day comment period and we will be reaching out for your comments to be sent in.
In addition, my term as President is up at the end of this year and we are seeking a new President for 2014. I will remain in my Communications role. The formal responsibilities of the President are: “The President shall be the principal executive officer of the Association and shall in general supervise, direct, and control all of the business and affairs of the Association and officers. The President shall convene Board meetings and shall preside or arrange for other members of the Board to preside at each meeting.” Board meetings are held quarterly in Discovery Bay or more often as needed.
The new President will have guidance and support from existing Board of Directors and Steering Committee members including our outstanding Legal Council, Michael Brodsky, to help him/her come up-to-speed on the important issues and upcoming milestones.
We are seeking a person who cares about the Delta and who can represent the organization in public meetings (such as our yearly Town Hall Meeting) and smaller venues (speaking to boating clubs or farmer organizations), who likes to organize events and has leadership experience.
