About Unit Reps
Each VCE unit with a Master Gardener program is entitled to have a representative to VMGA’s Board. According to Article VI of the Bylaws, a Unit Rep and an alternate are selected by the MGs in the unit or the local Extension Agent to serve as a liaison between the local MG program and VMGA. The Unit Rep must be a member of the association.
Duties of the Unit Rep
Current contact information, maintained by the Secretary, is essential for the Unit Rep and Alternate to stay in communication with VMGA. It is expected that the Unit Rep will attend bi-monthly Board meetings, or send the Alternate, and email a report to the Secretary sharing recent activities of the local unit or the unit’s handling of a special discussion topic. The information may be used in the association’s newsletter, The VMGA Report. The Unit Rep reports back to the local unit the business and activities of VMGA. Additional information about the Unit Rep duties is found in the Standing Rules of the Association.
