WHAT IS A COMMUNITY MEMBER MEETING?
We host quarterly gatherings for all community members of the Stevens Square-Loring Heights neighborhood. The Annual Meeting is the biggest of these meetings, and are the annual opportunity to elect representatives to the Board of Directors (more on that below), get important updates about what’s happening in your neighborhood and how to get involved, and to celebrate our community.
WHAT’S ON THE PROGRAM?
Starting at 10:30, we’ll explain a little bit about how SSCO works and how you can get involved, then hear mini-reports from SSCO’s committees so you can get the headlines about neighborhood safety, big construction projects, and events. Finally, we’ll be electing new members to the SSCO Board of Directors (more below).
WHAT ARE BOARD ELECTIONS?
The Community Member meetings are the only place where Board members can be elected. This is your chance to step up to help your community in a leadership role yourself, and/or to ensure that the people making decisions about your neighborhood will represent your interests. At this meeting the following seats are up for election:
Board Vice Chair
Two At-Large Board Member seats
