This past June AES board members gathered in North Texas at the home of Secretary Vanessa Gagne. We began our meeting Friday working ironing out all sorts of plans for the upcoming year through to 2017. Keep an ear out for exciting news about our CPK fundraiser for next year! Saturday we finished up our official business and were able to have a nice get together with some elephant friends we usually only see at the EMA conference. Lastly, on Sunday, we visited the Fort Worth Zoo to meet with their elephant department staff and see some Asian elephants.
We were so happy to be together in person not only to conduct AES business, but to catch up with our colleagues. We are thankful for our friends, supporters, and the elephants that drive us to work harder for their cause.
