In 2014, the KCC will be entering its 20th year as an organization devoted to protecting coastal lands and promoting public access to them. As an entirely volunteer organization, the KCC has been successful because of the many people who value the natural beauty of the Kingsburg area and who appreciate the importance of conserving the land and keeping our coastline accessible to all. We can't continue to do this without your on-going support.
As the holidays approach, 2013 draws to a close, and 2014 beckons, please consider making an end-of-the-year donation in order to help us sustain our efforts in the coming year. Your contribution is tax deductible and is very much appreciated!
You can make a donation by clicking CanadaHelps or by mailing your cheque to the Kingsburg Coastal Conservancy at Box1A, RR1, Rose Bay, Nova Scotia B0J 2X0.
Happy Holidays to you, your family, and friends from the
KCC's Board of Directors,
and thank you for your on-going support!

Dear friend of the Kingsburg Coastal Conservancy,
The Kingsburg Coastal Conservancy invites you to become a Full Member of the KCC. As you are aware, the KCC is completely volunteer-driven with no paid staff or office facility.
In the past, the Board has based its decisions on informal feedback and advice from our loyal supporters, but with land assets now more than $3 million, we believe the time has come to identify a base of interested and dedicated people who will more formally influence future activities.
Membership will be for a year from the time you become a member. As a member:

The KCC called an AGM for 20 July 2012 but was unable to achieve a quorum. As our bylaws require a second attempt, another meeting was called for 6 Sept 2012. Again a quorum was not possible. These documents were presented at both meetings. Please click to read.
The KCC Board will study ways to make a quorum more easily achievable for 2013.
