Year end notes & planning meeting for Climate Fair 2010

Greetings Everyone!

Hard to believe another year is ending – but 2010 promises to be an exciting year – here are a few updates:

1. Paul McGowan has agreed to coordinate the 2010 York Energy and Climate Day – currently planned for Saturday, May 1st. He will be holding an organizational meeting next Tuesday – December 9th at 4pm at his home. Last year’s event was a fantastic success, and we anticipate even bigger and better things this year – but we need your help in reaching out to potential participants. Contact Paul at: PSMcGow[at] for more information.

2. Our next official meeting will be our Annual Meeting on January 12th at 7pm. Officers for the 2010 year will be formally nominated and approved. We also hope to make this a pot-luck style celebration of our successes in 2009 – and a time to set our vision for 2010.

Both Wayne Boardman (Vice Chairman) and I are willing to serve another one year term in our current roles, but we welcome any and all interested people interested in serving in a leadership capacity. We understand people are very busy, so we do our best to keep the time commitment to a minimum.

The officer positions are:
1. Chairman
2. Vice Chairman
3. Treasurer
4. Secretary
5. Blogger/PR (new position)

If you have any interest in serving, please let me know.

3. Finally, as many of you know I have been serving on both this committee, and the Town Energy Steering Committee. I found myself having difficulty serving in both roles – and finding the time – so I have stepped down from the Town Energy Steering Committee to focus specifically on our committee. The Selectmen will appoint one of the two alternate candidates to fill out the remainder of my term on the Town Energy Steering Committee, however Vice Chairman Wayne Boardman will continue to serve on both committees.

That’s all for now – I hope everyone has a fun, safe and satisfying holiday season – and I look forward to working with you in what promises to be an exciting new year.

Best wishes!

Eric Hopkins
