Scheduled Meetings and Information
The MRBP Executive Committee met this afternoon to discuss the panel coordination meeting scheduled for October 5-7 at Reelfoot Lake State Park. With the on-going surge in covid-19 cases and many agencies implementing new travel restrictions, the Executive Committee has decided to shift the MRBP meeting to a virtual platform. Please keep these dates booked for an MRBP meeting – we are tentatively planning a series of 2-hr Zoom meetings from 10am-12pm and 1pm-3pm (central) all three days. Please see the revised agenda for meeting details.
We are also working with the state park to reschedule the in-person meeting for early 2022, if possible. With some luck and improving conditions surrounding the pandemic, tentative dates for an in-person meeting are February 3-4. Please hold those dates for now.
Thank you to everyone that submitted registration forms and member updates. We will still be compiling and providing member updates ahead of the virtual meeting. If you haven’t already done so, please provide a brief written update on significant ANS activities, accomplishments, and issues of concern since our last in-person MRBP meeting in March 2020. Let us know if you plan to submit an update but will not be able to make the September 3rd deadline that was previously requested.
We apologize for any inconvenience this change causes and remind you to cancel any reservations you may have made to attend the meeting!
