We are approaching our last Quarterly Member’s Meeting for this year, scheduled for 6:00 pm, December 16, 2015 at the Race Road Fire Station. This meeting will double as our Annual meeting and we will attend to “housekeeping” duties like electing directors and presenting our budget for 2016 to be voted on by our members in attendance.
Over the last few quarterly meetings we have explored issues like consolidation of small water systems, preparations for natural disasters, and the sources of funding for needed replacements and improvements. For this meeting our Board of Directors decided to organize a “World Café” — an informal setting at which our members can arrange themselves in small discussion groups with the aim of bringing forward issues and topics that our association should focus on next year. This will also be an opportunity for our Board to listen to our members with the aim of keeping our activities relevant to their needs. So, when you arrive at the Fire Station please bring your “hot topics” with you and take a seat at one of the discussion tables placed around the room. We will have a Board member at each table and, as befitting a “café” setting, we, of course will provide the coffee and goodies.
I am looking forward to hearing about our local water issues – and about the stewardship of our association – from you!
Warm regards, Jim Patton, President
