Meeting with DNREC and elected officials, DSSP Office.
The DMS Officers and Board of Directors meets annually with state Legislators, DNREC officials, and other Delaware officials in the Spring each year to discuss issues of interest to DMS. This meeting is an opportunity to get a heads up on issues coming down the pike and discuss our concerns about conservation resources, regulations, and issues that affect our members.

The proposed improvements at Fenwick State Park,
beach surf-fishing permits,
air stations and maintenance,
