Chapter Elections

The annual elections of the Susquehanna Chapter of Trout Unlimited will take place at the November 10, 2021 Chapter meeting. The meeting will be held at 7 pm in the Fellowship Hall of the Covenant Central Presbyterian Church in Williamsport.

President:                    Walt Nicholson

Vice President:            Open

Secretary:                    Kevin McJunkin

Treasurer:                    Bob Baker

Directors (2 available positions) Dave Craig and John Kolb

Nominations will be taken from the floor prior to the election. Any member is able to run for, and hold office. If you will be nominating someone, please make sure they are willing to service prior to nominating them.

There is also a number of committees that need a Chairperson / members to help with. We are specifically looking for someone to lead our Women’s committee, Youth Committee and the Diversity Committee.

Helping with any of the above will take some of the burden off members who are doing multiple jobs.

Any questions or if you would like to find out more about any of the positions, please let us know.

October 13 Chapter Meeting Cancelled

     Due to circumstances beyond our control, we have had to cancel our monthly meeting for October 13.  We will have our next monthly meeting on November 10, 2021 where our annual elections will be held.  We will announce the topic of the next meeting at a later date.

     We are sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause.

Hemlock and trout

Trout Unlimited’s South Central RVP Russ Collins was featured in an article this past month. “He sees, first-hand, how the iconic hemlock — Pennsylvania’s state tree — is under siege and is dying off,” and with it some of its vital ecosystem services.
