THIS MEETING HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER.  Please visit the Calendar for more information. 

We will have a special guest speaker at this month’s Chapter meeting briefing us on our newly adopted “Save the Spit” Campaign – Ms. Stephanie Stuckey Benfield, the Executive Director of Greenlaw who is leading the charge.

Greenlaw is a non-profit law firm dedicated to preventing air and water pollution that endangers human health and degrades Georgia’s natural resources.

Ms. Stuckey Benfield will be presenting on “Save the Spit” and the people, policies and power at play around this special piece of coastal land on Sea Island being threatened by private development from an out of state developer. She will let us know how our Chapter can help in the fight against this development, and also provide information on the upcoming lobby day at the Capitol with the Georgia Water Coalition (of which our chapter is a member). More details HERE.
