At our meeting on August 27th, the OBTC will hear a presentation from Amanda Plante of SoCal Parrot. OB’s famous ‘Squawk Squad’ of wild parrots have been threatened by dastardly individuals that have shot at and harmed the birds. SoCal Parrot will educate our community on their work to provide a gap of care and consideration for wild, naturalized parrots and to be a resource for wild parrot rehabilitation, education and protection.
Additionally, we will host a candidate forum for individuals seeking election to our OBTC Board of Directors. 7 seats are open for election! If you would like to take your community involvement to the next level, here’s a great opportunity. By being a Board Director, you can be an elected voice in communicating the views and needs of Ocean Beach to government agencies, be at the forefront of community discussions, take action on local issues and be a leader in promoting the general betterment of OB.
To be considered for candidacy, you must be a dues-paying OBTC member and submit your Letter of Intent stating your reasons for wanting to join the OBTC Board and describing any relevant experience or skills to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, August 25th.
