    Bylaws
    The Florida Native Plant Society Bylaws form the framework that the Board of Directors must follow to govern FNPS and FNPS Chapter activities. FNPS Chapters may develop their own bylaws, provided they are consistent with those of FNPS. The FNPS Bylaws are reviewed on a periodic basis and may be amended by an affirmative vote of three-fourths of the members present at any annual meeting, or at any other meeting of members; or by an affirmative vote of at least a 60% majority of the members participating in an on-line vote and/or mail-in vote which would adhere to the guidelines under Articles 4.073 & 4.074.

    Equipping for Field Trips
    Common sense dictates that Chapters bring the tools of plant identification to each trip. The field trip kit can include pictorial field guides, plant identification keys, hand lenses, and any existing plant lists for the properties visited. A site map, compass and flashlight will be essential should the group become disoriented or delayed.
    Of ultimate importance, safety and comfort for participants relies on thoughtful preparation. Bring location and contact information for local emergency treatment centers and hospitals as a safety precaution, as well as extra water, and a portable first aid kit tailored to field conditions. It is critical to notify participants in advance of essential preparations: proper clothing and footwear for the weather and conditions, sunscreen, insect repellent, adequate water, and lunch or snacks as appropriate. Beware of extreme temperatures, especially during summer trips; take rest breaks as needed, and monitor the condition of all participants. Make a bail-out plan should you need to remove someone from the field mid-trip; this is especially important on lengthy hikes through remote locations.

    Advertising & Publicity
    Field trip information should be presented at the meeting before the trip, and in the Chapter’s newsletter. Tell the audience what level of difficulty they can expect, as well as the primary objective of the trip. Provide maps or clear directions, the meeting time, trip duration, and any required fees.
