Leaders needed for Fripp Audubon Club

The terms for Sandra Rice and Sally Jessee, co-presidents of the Fripp Audubon Club end soon and the club needs to fill three vital leadership roles – president, vice president (or co-presidents), and treasurer. 

Each position is for a 2-year term. However, term length for president and vice president could be shorter in order to start a rotation.

The president and vice president lead the Fripp Audubon Board in establishing annual goals and programs; set up and conduct monthly meetings during the October-May season; utilize social media and general mailings to communicate upcoming programs and area events; and serve as liaison with organizations such as S.C. Audubon and Port Royal Cypress Wetlands.

The positions don’t require extensive birding skills, just good organizational skills. 

The treasurer maintains the Fripp Audubon Club financial records; deposits membership and donations funds; pays annual tax and insurance bills; pays or reimburses operating expenditures such as speaker honorariums and operating expenses; and publishes a quarterly financial summary. 

To fill any of these positions or for more information, contact SandraRice at or Sally Jessee at
