Winners from last year’s MMS Photo Contest
(see our Photo Galleries page for more contest winners from previous years)

Nominations open for 2022 MMS Board members

Contribute your ideas and energy to help make the MMS even better in 2022! The MMS is now accepting nominations from members who are interested in serving a one-year term, starting in January, as an officer on the MMS board. The MMS is a 100% volunteer organization, including its leadership.

The Recording Secretary position is now vacant, and our president has expressed that he will not run again this time for another term. Every officer position is open for election each year, even if the current officeholder desires to continue in that role. Anyone interested (including any incumbent officers) in being on the ballot should contact either Nan Etzwiler or John Lamprecht. The deadline for accepting nominations for a board position is 5 pm on November 1, 2021. Your name will be included on the ballot to be sent out to members in November. Be sure to include a little information about your interest and your past activities with the MMS, which we may include on the ballot. If you have any questions about any position, feel free to contact Nan or John, MMS past president.

Nominations open for annual Golden Chanterelle Award

Every year we select an MMS member who has provided exceptional service to the MMS and local Mycology through our Golden Chanterelle Award. This award can be won only once by any person.

E-mail your nominee for this award to John Lamprecht, along with a paragraph or two listing why this person is being nominated. All nominations must be received by December 1st. Be sure to include information to support your nominee. Click here for a list of past winners going back to 1991 for reference to avoid nominating a previous winner. Members will vote online to select the award winner, who will be announced along with our photo contest winners in February 2022.

Call for Silent Auction Donations

The MMS Silent Auction/Raffle Committee is requesting and accepting donations for the next MMS Silent Auction to be held for one week, early February 2022. We invite everyone to participate in this event by donating and bidding on items for this MMS fundraiser. Like last year, this will be an online event. This format needs a lot of preparation, so early donations are much appreciated. For ideas on what to donate and how to donate for this event, please refer to the details in the October issue of our newsletter the Toadstool Review or contact Jennifer: drew0052@umn.edu
