Council Now Has an Environmental Sustainability Chairperson!
Our Executive Committee recently approved Mee Yoke McGuire as our council's first-ever Environmental Sustainability Chairperson, and she is hereby appointed to that role for the remainder of the 2022-2023 PTA term. This role will not affect her Treasurer duties in our council. (NOTE: As Mee Yoke was one of the candidates but also in the Executive Committee, she abstained from the decision-making process)
Mee Yoke is someone who tries to introduce sustainability practices within her home and lifestyle, tries to promote environmental-friendly sustainable practices at events, and who cares deeply about the effects of climate change on children. In the Environmental Sustainability Chairperson role, she hopes to help educate our local PTAs on sustainability topics and strategies, as well as help make our council's own programs and practices more sustainable in practice. Future ideas include bringing in guest speakers and initiating district-wide sustainability events. As this is a new position within our Council Board of Directors, it is a clean slate to work from and the sky is the limit! Please join us in congratulating Mee Yoke as our Environmental Sustainability Chairperson, and offering your support! We know she will do GREAT!
