Karen Ringstrand Elected to ASBA Board of Directors

BAEE Treasurer, Karen Ringstrand, has just been elected to the ASBA Board of Directors. Her election makes three BAEE board members who are also on the ASBA board. The others are Countess Clarissa Bonde and Bonnie Driggers.

In October, Karen and several other BAEE members will attend the annual ASBA conference, which is in Pittsburg, PA, this year.

We will have a table at the Portfolio presentation and will have copies of our book, Native Plants of the Mid Atlantic, for sale as well as note cards, holiday cards, and prints of members’ art work. Be sure to drop by and see us if you are also at the conference.

You can still register for the conference, and although many of the workshops are full, there are many free events. Just being able to visit the Hunt Exhibition is worth the trip. The conference is a great opportunity to make new friends and renew old acquaintances.
