Surfrider’s 12th annual International Surfing Day is coming up quickly! On one day, June 20th, International Surfing Day, we take a moment to reflect on the impact we’ve made, the campaigns we’ve won and the beaches we’ve protected. International Surfing Day is the day to salute your favorite beach! To celebrate, we will be holding a cleanup on the shores of Lake Wylie at McDowell Nature Preserve. Check out the details here.
CELEBRATE A WIN, WATCH GREAT FILMS, AND KEEP STANDING FIRM TO PROTECT OUR COAST.
For months, people on the East Coast have been fighting a proposal to open the east coast to offshore oil and gas drilling. Now we’ve won. The Atlantic has been taken out of the federal proposal for new offshore oil and gas leases.
It’s time to celebrate a win for people power and stay engaged in the longterm work of protecting the oceans.
With the Presidential race months away, we are focusing on the election that will really make a difference for us all in the Charlotte area. Our chapter will be holding an election for 4 important executive committee positions. To effectively run our chapter, we look to bring new people into these leadership roles every 2 years. This enables the chapter to remain fresh with new ideas, style and excitement. At our February meeting, held at Wallerbears Surf & Skate shop, Feb 25th, 7 PM, we will elect a new Chair, Treasurer, Secretary & Community Outreach Coordinator. If you are interested in running for one of these, you can check out position descriptions here. Anyone nominated for a position, must be a member in good standing.
