A message from APNA President Anne Cooper:
There will be a special meeting of the APNA membership on Tuesday, May 21, 2019 from 6:30 pm to 7:00 pm at St. Andrews Episcopal Church for the sole purpose of electing an alternate board member. Currently, there are not sufficient alternates to satisfy the requirements of APNA.
APNA lacks a board member willing and able to serve as Treasurer. Fortunately, APNA member Donna Taylor is willing to serve as Treasurer for the remainder of this year. However. APNA bylaws require that she first be elected as a Board Alternate at a special meeting.
If elected as an alternate, she can be appointed by the Board President (or, in the President’s absence, the Board Vice President) to the Board as a member and elected by the Board to fill the Treasurer’s position. In compliance with APNA bylaws, the APNA Board acted at the membership meeting on May 14th to to elect Donna Treasurer, contingent on her being elected by the membership at a special meeting and appointment to the Board by the President (or Vice-President).
It is necessary to have paid your membership dues PRIOR to April 21, 2019 to be eligible to vote.
A simple majority of eligible to vote members present at the special meeting will serve to elect an Alternate member. This meeting will take place before and independently of the Armory Park Historic Zoning meeting which will commence at 7:00 pm at the same location.
Because I will be away, APNA Vice President Maurice Roberts will preside at the special meeting.
