DATE: May 23, 2006 @ 7:00 PM at the Ellsworth Public Library (Enter lower level)

We cordially invite you to the HCPC’s annual meeting. This has been a productive year for the HCPC and we hope you will join us for this event. This is also your opportunity to tell us what you think we should be doing in the future. We have several items on the agenda.

The first is a presentation by our guest speaker, Ms. Robin Alden, the executive director of Penobscot East Resource Center in Stonington, a support organization for community-based marine stewardship. She was Maine Commissioner of Marine Resources 1995-1997. She will be talking about the future of marine resources in Hancock County. Feel free to invite fellow residents to hear this presentation.

The second is a review of our accomplishments over the past year. The third is the election of HCPC board members and the chair. If you are interested in serving on the executive board, feel free to contact me for details as we will have several vacancies. The fourth is approval of our annual work plan, budget and services policy.
