Some of you may know, Bayou Reefkeeping is registered 501c3 non-profit organization, which is not a very easy classification to obtain, I might add.
As such, we have a board of directors which manages the financial aspects of the business, with input from the entire staff as a whole. Jeff, @Jawalker85, was recently added to the board of directors. Since joining our staff, he has been one of our most reliable and hard working team members. He has never hesitated to take on a leading role whenever and wherever needed and has put in countless hours of work to continue to make our club as best as it can be!
We are thrilled to have him join Bayou Reefkeeping's board of directors! Please join us in showing him our appreciation for his dedication to BRK!!!
We would also like to take this opportunity to give a huge thank you to Kirk_M and Jaytizzle! Who have proudly served as directors for the club for many years. They have recently moved on from these positions, but will remain on staff and continue to tribute to the organization in many ways. Thank you Kirk and JT for all you've done for BRK and continue to do!
