Bylaws, Elections, and Voting Changes

The bylaws that govern the East Lawrence Neighborhood Association have been under review for the last several months by the ELNA Board and Coordinator, with public input. Some changes made include: an updated list of lifetime members, an addendum for business lifetime memberships and costs, removal of mention of monthly board vs. general board meetings (the distinction has never been clear), definition of what constitutes notice of meeting (to include electronic means), and several points to clarify election procedures and voting eligibility. The final copy to adopted will be voted on by the Board and attending membership at the September 8th meeting. Drafts  bylaw update september 2015 untracked and bylaw update september 2015 are current as of September 2nd 2015.

Pay special attention to the election procedures and voting eligibility as ELNA Board elections are coming up in November. New this year, prospective Board members are asked to declare their intention to serve on the ELNA Board at the October ELNA meeting, October 5th 7-9pm at the New York School library. As always, only in-neighborhood individual (not business or nonprofit or out of neighborhood associate) members are eligible to vote for the ELNA board. All Board members must be voting eligible.

Further questions can be addressed by reviewing the bylaws on the ELNA website or directed to the Coordinator at
