2016 USAC General Membership Meeting

The 2016 USAC General Membership meeting will be held on Thursday, November 17th, at 7:00pm at the Salt Lake City Library (210 E 400 S, SLC, UT) Conference Room B. We encourage all members in good standing to attend.

In addition to updates from the Officers and our legal team, we will be holding elections for the 2017 USAC Board of Directors. 

Do you want to get more involved with the Stream Access fight? The USAC is looking for motivated individuals that are willing to help drive the cause. Is that you or somebody you know? Beginning today, and ending on November 3rd, we are accepting Nominations for four (4) of USAC's Board of Directors. These 4 directors will serve the 2017 term with Bert Ley, Chris Barkey, and Kris Olson, who have been selected by the existing board for an additional term. 

To be eligible for nomination, a person must:  
  • Be a member of the Coalition.
  • Support the mission of the USAC, that is: to promote and assist in all aspects of securing and maintaining public access to, and lawful use of, Utah's public waters and streambeds.
  • Be available to commit no less than 20 hours per month, on average. In peak times such as during the legislative session this commitment may be substantially greater.
  • Be able to attend, either in person or by teleconference, monthly meetings of the USAC Board of Directors.
Sound interesting? Nominations can be submitted directly by email to  secretary@utahstreamaccess.org, and will be approved by the sitting Board of Directors. Please include with your nomination a brief paragraph about yourself, why you want to be involved, and why you would be an asset to the USAC leadership. The ballot will be finalized one week before the membership meeting. 

We thank you for your support, and we hope to see you on November 17th! 

5000th MEMBER DRIVE

Believe it or not, from a handful of individuals we have grown to nearly 5,000 members. To celebrate that monumental number, the USAC (with Fish Tech Outfitters and Sage Fly Fishing) will be giving away the brand new Sage X to member # 5000. It may take a week, it may take a month, but either way it shows how far we've come as an organization - and how much stronger our grassroots voice has become

To be eligible, the person must be a new member ( so if you're already receiving this email, you can't win the X), must support USAC's mission statement, and must sign up through our website. Spread the word, and help us hit 5,000 members strong!
Thanks again for your continued support.
