From the President’s Desk Year In Review and Looking Forward

 

 

Wow, Has it been a year already? At the beginning of the year I discussed the following five priorities for the IPC, coming from last year’s paddlers’ survey

 

  • Development of Water Trails and Access Points.
  • Advocacy
  • Safety and Education
  • Stewardship
  • Our Web Page and Online Presence

 

So how have we done? Some Highlights of the year

 

 

 

I would like to think that we are heading in the right direction, but still have a lot to do! Should anyone want to take a more active role in the IPC, I would welcome the increased participation. There are a number of board positions available. Please feel free to contact me so we can discuss how to get involved.

 

 

 

Tom Eckels,

President, Illinois Paddling Council
