HMANA’s board of directors recently met for their annual face-to-face meeting, December 5, 2015. The board made plans and assigned tasks for 2016 and beyond, with an emphasis on preparing to hire an executive director and move into the Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge’s visitor center as soon as it is completed.  Members and hawkwatch site coordinators were invited to the board’s work session for the first time, and their attendance and input was very much appreciated, enlivening our work and reinforcing our commitment to HMANA.   Watch for a full report on the board session in the spring issue of Hawk Migration Studies.  Thanks to Hawk Mountain Sanctuary for hosting our 2015 session!
