The Eastside Neighborhood Association bylaws currently require that the ENA board consist of no less than 10 members. The current board recognizes, however, that a great deal of useful and important activities can be conducted by volunteers who do not have time for or interest in the monthly board meetings. We want to focus our volunteering efforts on getting people involved in those activities: the newsletter, the picnic, gardening activities, membership expansion, and more.

To that end, the board is proposing an amendment to the bylaws to require that the ENA board consist of 5 to 15 members. Because this is a change to the bylaws, it will require a formal vote at the annual general meeting in February. At least 25 ENA members, paid or not, need to attend for this vote. Please join us at the General Meeting on February 18 to discuss and vote on this proposal.
