New on the VCS Board

The Vineyard Conservation Society, at its annual meeting on June 29, voted to approve the nomination of four new directors: former Martha’s Vineyard Commissioner Mimi Davisson; Richard Toole, who currently serves on the Oak Bluffs conservation commission and the zoning board of appeals; marketing and nonprofit management consultant Alan Ganapol; and Julie Anne McNary, professional fundraiser.

This year VCS looks to strengthen its environmental advocacy programs and will focus on improving the quality and health of the Vineyard’s Great Ponds, increasing the Island’s waste management and recycling capacities, and informing the public about the local effects of global climate change.
