APNA Annual Meeting 11/12/19: Elections, Dusk, Holiday Party, and Sidewalks!

A reminder from APNA Interim President David Bachman-Williams about next week’s important annual meeting:

Hi Armory Parkers.

A week from today is our November Annual Meeting. It is in the St. Andrews Episcopal Church Hall and begins at 6:30 PM.

On the agenda will be elections for Officers and Directors for the Armory Park Board and also for the Armory Park Historic Zone Advisory Board. The DUSK Festival will have been held at the Armory Park over the weekend so we should review our reactions to that event given the email communication that has been taking place on this list serve. (Page Repp from the DUSK Festival and Greg Jackson from the City have requested to be on the December Agenda.  We will have the DUSK Festival on the agenda then as well as now.)

I will give an update on the state of our bylaws in light of a meeting I have with the City of Tucson Neighborhood Services staff. We need to schedule our End of Year Holiday party (time, date, and place). We will have an update on our sidewalk repair situation which is moving forward.

Besides regular reports that is what I know about. Please let me know if you would like anything else on the agenda.

Here is the agenda: APNA Annual Meeting Agenda 11-12-19

July 2019 APNA Meeting Summary

For those who missed the July 9 meeting, here is an Executive Summary from APNA President Anne Cooper:

Minutes and financial reports were approved from May 2019.

Treasurer’s Report: Donna Taylor, new Treasurer, provided new reports that were approved by the board. It was suggested and agreed to that we continue to bank with Wells Fargo for the foreseeable future. It was agreed that a finance standing committee be formed to assist Donna with projects.

Communications: Ken Taylor proposed creating a G-Suite (Google) email address for individual board members and committee members that could retain some anonymity for private user’s information. It was decided it should be an Action Item for discussion on the August agenda.

Civic Engagement: Anne showed the board the newly created documents created by PDSD for a good overview of complex issues for residents to better understand. Copies of these documents will be available on the website and will be passed out at next month’s meeting.

APNA Special Election 5/21/19

A message from APNA President Anne Cooper:

Dear all:

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.

Thank you
