Yesterday, we had one our Southeast Regional/District Mega Meetings of the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission at Platte River State Park’s Mallet Lodge near Louisville. Monthly meetings (some with work integration) are held within each of the four districts the agency has. The mega meeting is held twice a year in the Commission’s Southeast District where all Game and Parks Commission staffers within or even outside of the region come to hear presentations on cutting edge, timely topics, get updates on programs and projects, ask questions, swap ideas, plus seek additional assistance on events or work efforts. Now, I’ll be the first to tell you that I’m not particularly fond of meetings (that’s an understatement, actually), however, I enjoy the district and mega meetings we have in the Southeast! Here are a few of the presenters and their topics from yesterday.
What’s great about these mega meetings is the staff interaction and to be able to meet new faces in the Game and Parks family.
What’s also neat is the opportunity to visit with others while enjoying a fun outdoor activity at the conclusion of the indoor session of the mega meetings like kayaking and canoeing on the scenic Platte River which we did yesterday.
I truly love my job and the dedicated, passionate people I work with in the Game and Parks family! If only my buddy Eric Fowler of the Commission’s NEBRASKAland Magazine would stop shooting pics of me, darn it! “Get off the sandbar, put your life jacket back on, and take pics of others, Big E, not me!”
