We produce a newsletter twice a year, usually in the spring and in the fall.  We mail (or email) it to all our members and to organizations that have expressed interest. Educational articles as well as reports of our activities are included.

- Maintaining this website as a resource for the public

New webmaster Sandy Ward has been busy in 2014 revising the FCAWM website that Ed Brown had created and maintained for 10 years.  Suggestions welcome. A website is always a work-in-progress.  See Sandy's blog, a new feature added in March 2014, linked from the News and Events page.
