Chapter Business: Chapter elections are coming up in December. Are you interested in a leadership position in the Santa Cruz Chapter? Find out which positions are being elected, the duties of those positions, and and how to nominate yourself or someone else.
Guest speaker: Sean Van Sommeran, Executive Director of the Pelagic Shark Research Foundation. www.pelagic.org
You’ve all seen and heard Sean or read his comments in the regional printed and visual media. Think: National Geographic; Discovery Channel and like that… He’s the “go to guy” for shark info.
Sean will be presenting a yearly update of his past year of shark research, including recent shark strandings, lack of sightings, incorrect sightings, and hoaxes. Judging from past experience, we’re safe to say he’s an educational and entertaining speaker! Sean’s “shark talks” are usually a lively affair.
Light refreshments will be provided.
Everyone is invited and welcome! You do not have to be a member to attend.
