Dear Roland Park Civic League members and residents:
I am pleased to announce the annual meeting of the general membership of the Roland Park Civic League will take place on Wednesday, May 24, 2017 beginning promptly at 7:00 p.m. in the multipurpose room at Roland Park Elementary/Middle School. In the spirit of participative democracy,
all Civic League members are encouraged to attend, and all interested Roland Park residents are invited. Among our responsibilities at this meeting will be the election of officers and plat representatives for the 2017-2018 term as well as to consider adoption of By-Laws revisions proposed
by the Civic League Board. A slate of officers and directors proposed by our nominating committee is enclosed with this letter. Additional nominations may be made from the floor. Proposed By-Law changes, including a “red-line” version, can be found at rolandpark.org/rpcl-annual-mtg-2017 (this page), as of May 14, and hard copies can be viewed at the Roland Park office, 5115B Roland Avenue above Tuxedo Pharmacy, during open hours-please contact Beth Hayes, office manager, at [email protected] or 410-464-2525.
The Board of the Civic League will report on their activities for the past year and goals for the coming year, as will the Roland Park Community Foundation, the Architectural Review Board and the Maintenance Committee. Following introductions and these reports, we will conduct the election of officers and plat representative, then hear a presentation from the Fire Department regarding their plans for service from the Roland Park Firehouse, next moving to the By-laws revisions vote. The evening will culminate with a report by our Cycle Track Committee, to support the Civic League Board’s position to the City on this important topic.
Those general members of the Roland Park Civic League whose dues are current (prior fiscal year 2016-17 paid) are entitled to vote on Board nominations, By-Law revisions, and any other business addressed at our annual meeting. If you have not paid your Civic League dues you will have the opportunity to pay by cash or check at the meeting. Those members wishing to vote by proxy can do so by complying with our current By-laws requirements found in Article 1, Section D. Note that the League Secretary, Patti Ephraim, must be contacted (email: [email protected] ) ahead of time to secure a proxy. Refreshments will be served and we hope to see you on May 24th.
Ian D. MacFarlane
President, Roland Park Civic League
