Farewell Chris Eberly
We hope that you received and reviewed the year end summary of the impressive list of conservation successes that were achieved by the GCBO staff in 2015. Although we feel well-positioned to build on our ongoing work and are looking forward to a prosperous 2016, the financial market downturn has impacted foundation and corporate giving and the Board of Directors has had to make some hard decisions regarding staffing and spending. As a result, the board made the decision to eliminate the Executive Director position. Carol Jones has agreed to step in as interim GCBO Manager while we focus on restructuring the organization. The dedicated GCBO staff and Board are continuing to use your generous donations and membership fees on programmatic work of habitat conservation, research, and education which are the cornerstone of GCBO and we thank you for your support.The GCBO staff and Board wish Chris Eberly the best in his pursuit of a new job closer to his children.
