Each year, the Virginia Avian Records Committee (VARCOM) adds new voting members to replace those members who rotate off the committee after finishing their four-year terms. We are now soliciting nominations for *two* members to serve on VARCOM beginning in January 2018.
Prospective members have to meet these requirements:
* be a member of the Virginia Society of Ornithology
* have demonstrated expertise in the distribution and field identification of Virginia birds
* accept the responsibilities of VARCOM membership as outlined in the VARCOM bylaws
Chief among their responsibilities, committee members are asked to attend an annual meeting in March and to vote promptly on bird records using the DOVES website at http://vsodoves.org/
If you wish to nominate someone for membership or are interested in serving yourself, please send me a message to that effect at myrmecocichla AT gmail.com … please do NOT respond directly to this email or post nominations on this listserv. If you plan to nominate someone, please get that individual’s permission first. Please send any nominations to me by 10 October.
