At the September WHO monthly meeting, the membership voted to hold the previously-postponed Annual Meeting and Elections of the WHO Board of Directors on ...
Tuesday, October 20, 2020 (3rd Tues. of the month) @ 7pm virtually over Zoom.
The annual meeting (originally scheduled for March 17) was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, realizing the pandemic would continue to affect our lives for many months to come, and with people becoming more acclimated to using technology like virtual meetings as a means of communication, neighbors decided to reinvigorate the group with a changeover of the board.
Nominations for all Board positions are open now. Nominations will close immediately before the elections, during the meeting Oct. 20. Anyone age 18 and older who either lives in the neighborhood, owns property in the neighborhood, or works here can run for any of the 7 Board seats: President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and 3 Members-at-Large.
All neighbors are invited to attend the annual meeting to have a vote and say in the future and direction of the neighborhood organization.
