Annual Meeting Update – Ford Motors Board of Directors
I want to thank everyone who attended last Thursday’s Annual Meeting. Considering it was also Parent/Teacher’s Night across the area, we had a good turnout. It was great to mix with neighbors while enjoying drinks and veggies from Albertsons, pastries from Mojo’s Donuts and Korean treats from Koco Bell’s. Three of our attendees each left with a special door prize. We added two very much appreciated board members. As per our bylaws, the board will hold a working session to establish officer roles within the next two weeks. CTNA will post a separate news release after that meeting to formally announce the new board and officer roles.
Ford Motors has 15 sitting board members and I suspect not one of them has built an automobile much less worked on the all important assembly line.
An organization’s Board of Directors does not and cannot by itself make the organization successful in fulfilling its purpose. Only through vibrant membership participation can CTNA represent and advocate for Boise’s western-most neighborhood association.
We need your experience, your skills and your passion. Where will you fit it? Give this list your consideration.
Annual Meeting Planning – Let’s do what we need to do so that next year we don’t conflict with other major events in our community ie. Parent Teachers night
Membership Lead – Brainstorming with others on how to reach out and make people favorable aware of CTNA.
Artwork / Signage / Posters etc.
Facebook Lead – updating CTNA’s Facebook page with news, information and events to keep membership returning to our page
HOA Messaging Coordinator – Our neighborhood HOA’s can be integral parts of our outreach. We need to establish continuing ties to our HOA’s
New Library – work with other CTNA members, the board, and others to grow a consensus on the need for a Boise western library
McDevitt and other recreational amenities – identify opportunities in our current and proposed recreation areas and work with others to make things happen.
