The talk will explore the wild mushrooms that fruit in Poland and in North Carolina, their ecological roles, their culinary value, and their taxonomy. Do the same mushrooms occur in both places?

Van Cotter's passionate interest in fungi began when he was assistant manager on a fruit tree farm in Michigan watching beautiful cherries succumb to fungal brown rot. For his graduate degrees he studied beech bark disease in New England and then boletes (friends of the forest) in the Himalaya. His career in the Crop Protection Industry was focused on finding new chemicals to control fungal diseases, nematodes and insects. In retirement he has been volunteering teaching and working mycological research projects at local Universities and in Farmer-to-Farmer assignments around the world in mushroom cultivation, crop protection and management of mycorrhizae in forest nurseries.

    As many of you know our President Jan Krzysztof Teller resigned from his position in Fall 2017.

    Until the general election in the Fall of 2018:

    Stephanie Hurt, our Vice President, is now acting President of the Polish American Club of Triangle (PAC), thus we are seeking candidates to fill  in the position of
    Acting Vice- President of PAC.

    Please nominate yourself or someone by sending email to PAC:  polam.raleigh@gmail.com

    Please state the name of the candidate with short paragraph of the candidate bio (in English).

    If you nominate someone (not yourself), please make sure that the candidate has agreed to run for the position before you send the email.

    The due date  for sending nominations is March 10, 2018
    Then, we will announce all candidates and schedule PAC meeting to hold the election (most probably March 20th).

    Please note:
    According to our by-laws, the candidates and all who will vote  must be PAC Members in good standing (it means that he/she must pay 2018 club dues prior to the voting).

    Regards!
