Description: This past March the membership was asked for the first time ever to vote on an advocacy issue instance the issue was a petition initiated by the California Native Plant Society supporting the equal protection of plants under the Federal Endangered Species Act. A total of 34 votes were cast, with an overwhelming majority of the votes in favor of MOSCB becoming a signatory to the petition. Thirty-four votes is roughly 15% of the membership, so it is unclear as to whether our beaming a signatory to the petition truly reflects the view held by the majority of the membership. Moreover, there was no discussion or debate of this matter over the list-serve. One possible explanation for these two events is the lack of anonymity with respect to expressing one's views or one's vote. Whether or not this contributed to the light turn-out is unclear, but it is a concern that the Board will be considering in the near future. Any comments or suggestions as to how to improve the process would be greatly appreciated. Please send them to the chapter email address at

Keywords: Federal Endangered Species Act, California Native Plant Society, MOSCB, General Land Office, Oaks
