Dear friend of the Kingsburg Coastal Conservancy,
The Kingsburg Coastal Conservancy invites you to become a Full Member of the KCC. As you are aware, the KCC is completely volunteer-driven with no paid staff or office facility.
In the past, the Board has based its decisions on informal feedback and advice from our loyal supporters, but with land assets now more than $3 million, we believe the time has come to identify a base of interested and dedicated people who will more formally influence future activities.
Membership will be for a year from the time you become a member. As a member:

The KCC called an AGM for 20 July 2012 but was unable to achieve a quorum. As our bylaws require a second attempt, another meeting was called for 6 Sept 2012. Again a quorum was not possible. These documents were presented at both meetings. Please click to read.
The KCC Board will study ways to make a quorum more easily achievable for 2013.
