Your Master Gardener Provincial Council will be providing regular updates to all of you in this new feature on things you might want to know about and watch for.

Each of our six elected Chapter Reps will continue to inform their respective members on the details for initiatives.  However, this “What’s Up” feature is to provide highlights only:

• Since the Launch of our new mgabc.org website in 2011:
1. The GROWING feature can now be downloaded in a PDF format to print off and read at your leisure. It’s our electronic version of a newsletter
2. All Chapters can load their own information on demand for the public and their membership. See what’s happening in your community. They are only a ‘click’ away on the Chapters tab
3. Chapters can also maintain secure items on the website, including Clinic Schedules and Member Contact Lists. Please check under YOUR Chapter name for your local information. You may need to sign in to see Members Only Info.

• We will be exploring ways and means for fundraising, including grant opportunities to meet our educational mandate

• Our Provincial bylaws are being reviewed to optimize our Governance responsibilities. Those bylaw changes will lead to more transparent and member friendly policies

• A new "GOLDEN TROWEL" Provincial AWARD of MERIT is now posted: The Winner of the Golden Trowel for 2012 was Pam Harrison
• Council now uses “SKYPE” to conduct monthly meetings

• Stay tuned for more updates as Council moves forward
