It's that time of year again! Join us on Wednesday, March 22 at 7:30pm for our Annual Meeting and Board Elections at Bloomfield's Brookdale Tavern and Kitchen on Broad Street. If you're curious about what we've been up to and what we have planned, come on out to learn all about the BPC and if you've ever thought about taking on a leadership role with the Brookdale Park Conservancy, the time has come to step up and run!
Elections for two-year Conservancy board positions will be held at our annual meeting and there are a handful of opportunities open now for energetic, creative and committed volunteers. To be eligible to run, candidates must be current members having gifted a minimum of $25 prior to January 25, 2017 and the nominating process is a bit different this year.
Nominations are open for March 2017 election of officers
For technical reasons, the Nominating Committee will not be nominating a slate of candidates well in advance of the March 2017 elections. We deeply apologize. One positive effect of this situation is that openings are still available for four positions: Vice-Chairperson, Assistant Secretary, Assistant Treasurer and an At-Large-Member of the Board.
We welcome anyone who is interested to come forward and consider running for any of these four positions on the Board of Directors. It is a great opportunity to get some new input into our organization. If you are interested, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
At this time, those persons who currently hold these positions (Yulia Bellinger, Teri Gatto, Ray King and Susan Jankolovitz, respectively) have agreed to continue in those same positions. If any positions are contested, in the week before election, those individuals will be contacted by the committee for further interview.
Note that candidacy advocated by the Nominating Committee means that names are put forward for the general election by the committee and avoids the need to request a nomination (even by a candidate him/herself) or a second.
We look forward to welcoming the next group Board of Directors at our Annual Meeting on Wednesday, March 22, 2017!
