The CNNC Communication Committee held it’s last meeting in November. The committee decided to explore making the web page more interactive with the possibility of adding committee blogs and bulletin boards to the evolving site. The committee hopes to work on this in the coming months. Jason Simmons has agreed to oversee this as he has professional experience in this kind of design. Also, the committee has agreed for the moment to attempt to deliver the monthly newsletter to all residences in the central northside. In the past, the newsletter often did not get delivered due to various physical barriers (locked apartment building front doors, for example) and the lack of volunteers who could commit to getting the newsletter to their neighbors each and every month. Members interested in volunteering to deliver the monthly newsletter should contact Julie Peterson at email@example.com.
Finally, Scott “Skip” Mosser has been appointed as the Communication Committee representative to the Community Planning Committee. Skip will be advising the Community Planning Committee on issues related to organizational communication and public relations. The Communication Committee did not meet in December but will hold it’s January meeting to be held on January 22nd at 7:15 p.m. at CNNC “world headquarters” at Arch Court.
Revised By Laws to Be Submitted to the Membership
At a special December meeting, the Board of Directors reviewed proposed changes to the CNNC by laws. These proposed changes were the result of months of diligent work by the CNNC By Laws Committee. Randy Zotter, the chair of the committee oversaw work on various aspects of the Organization’s current by laws from fixing grammatical and formatting errors to more substantive changes in organizational procedures.
CNNC Vice President Greg Spicer chaired the special meeting and noted that, “the Board was in broad agreement on many of the changes—including some key substantive matters.” There were some areas of discussion and disagreement among the Board however, including whether or not to make some current committees standing committees or “ad hoc” committees.
As soon as the board sees the by laws with the proposed revisions included, the proposed changes adopted by the Board will then go to the CNNC General Membership for approval. Given the current procedure for changes in the by laws, this process will take several months to complete. Listen for details of the process at upcoming meetings.
