GDSSC Biannual Meeting: August 12, 2022

The ordinary meeting held in June was rescheduled to August 2022, due to COVID-19 infection among members of the leadership team.

Because the meeting had been rescheduled and failed to meet quorum, the leadership team decided to hold an abbreviated meeting (with no discussion and without ordinary formal welcomes and introductions), and to follow up with members by email.

Important takeaways from today's meeting include:

  • The GDSSC now has a website at

    • This is where the link from today's meeting recording will be posted on the website within 24 hours

  • The ASALH/USFWS Storytelling grant is 50% completed and the GDSSC still needs narrative performers ($300 per performance), narrative writers ($300 per narrative), and an audio-visual recorder & editor ($2,000 -- good summer project for a student with skills in producing video)

  • The Friends of the GDSNWR Jericho Trailhead expansion project is seeking bids from qualified contractors for 4 projects related to the grant -- Tuesday, August 16, 2022, will be a Pre-Bid Conference and Site Visit at the Jericho Trailhead entrance off of White Marsh Road. The bid package file is too large to send out, for those interested please reach out to Chris Lowie directly.

  • Any other business to be emailed to Alexa ( and cc Celka (

SAVE THE DATE: The bi-annual December meeting will be held on December 16, 2022 @ 2pm ET!
