The Trustee Council will hold its sixth annual public meeting and open house via webinar this year due to current nationwide health concerns. The meeting date is June 17, 2021. The webinar is open to everyone and we encourage your attendance and participation.
During this meeting, we will present updates on the progress made by the Trustee Council and in each of the seven Restoration Areas. This meeting will also serve as the annual public meeting for the Regionwide Trustee Implementation Group. We'll also provide an opportunity for public comments after the updates are presented. We will hold an open house Q&A session preceding the public meeting.

Time: Open House 5:30 – 6:00 p.m. CT
