                   Preliminary Report and Draft Recommendations

The National Audubon Society Ad Hoc Chapter Committee has been working on 
Chapter-NAS Partnership issues for over a year, and we are now sharing with you 
our draft recommendations for strengthening this partnership.  Our preliminary 
report, including draft recommendations and appendices, is now available for 
your review on the Web at http://www.audubon.org/local/cso/adhoccom/.  In 
addition, we will mail a hard copy early next week to all Chapter Presidents 
and Vice Presidents. You are strongly encouraged to share these materials with 
other Chapter leaders who have an interest in the recommendations. 

Over the next several months, we will be making extensive efforts to contact 
all Chapters, State Boards, and State Offices to get further feedback and open 
a constructive dialogue around these draft materials.  Your careful 
consideration of these new ideas and partnering approaches will help make this 
process successful for all of us.

The comment and discussion period will run from now through November and end on 
December 1.  During December, the Committee will integrate the Chapter and 
staff feedback into the final report and then present the final recommendations 
to the NAS Board of Directors for approval at the January, 2005 Board meeting 
in Naples, FL.
