Folks we had a great meeting last Thursday and as a result the Chapter has a new Executive Committee.  Congratulations to the new Chapter Chair – Mark Davy, Vice Chair – Marvin Weiss, Secretary – Jeremy Thornton, and Volunteer Coordinator – Cristian Murphy.  Ian Grunke and Tim Clare were elected as At-Large members of the Executive Committee.  The Chapter is still seeking a Treasurer.  Hopefully we can find and elect one at the January meeting.  If you are interested in being the Chapter Treasurer please email

Very many thanks to the volunteer leaders who were on the Executive Committee most recently, former Chair – Katie Lawrence, Vice Chair – Jim Brady, Secretary – Heidi Liebowitz, Treasurer – Sylvia Kopec, Volunteer Coordinator – Tom Bruckner, and former At-Large Member – Frank Messina.

Thanks also to those who joined or renewed their membership at the meeting.  We’ll do a better job at retaining members if we can get more people to sign up for automatic renewal at  There is a red button in the upper right hand corner where you can give yourself a username and a password.  Your email is the unique identifier or you can use your Surfrider Member Number.  Once there you can tell the system to charge your credit card once a year (until it expires)  so you’ll never forget to renew.  You can also change your address, or other contact info by using this “My Account” feature.

As always you can “like” us on Facebook.
Stay tuned to the website for a new schedule of meeting dates and times.  Please come out and remember, it is your chapter.
