When:  ELNA meets each month, NEW IN 2019 on the second Monday.  We meet at the New York School library during the school year, and during the summer months, at the Lawrence Creates Makerspace (at 9th and New Jersey), Lawrence Percolator (in the alley behind the Lawrence Arts Center), or the Delaware Street Commons in the 1200 block of Delaware Street.

Procedures:   All ELNA meetings are open meetings and anyone is welcome to attend.

At the meetings, agenda items will be covered one by one and discussed among presenters, Board, and attendees.  Sometimes, a specific action will be requested of the Board; the writing of a letter of support, for example.  If such a formal action is requested, Board members will then be asked to vote their support and pass motion.  Only Board members will be asked to vote on these items.  Other items may require a vote of general attending membership.

On each agenda, you will find this statement:
Note about our meetings: We appreciate our neighborhood meetings as an opportunity to learn more about what is happening in our neighborhood. For this reason we request that we our interactions reflect our pursuit of knowledge and assume that we are all in it for these same reasons. Assume good intent on everyone’s part.  We will make every effort to recognize everyone’s viewpoints.
