However, with that said, things at TBA are getting done and our organization is staying on budget. You may have noticed we have replaced and or repaired all of our outdoor lighting, created additional storage space, and repaired our iron gate. Additionally, we are preparing for three (3) large spring social events: a scavenger hunt, the Purim Carnival and the annual poker tournament.
After many failed attempts, all of which I take ownership of, and for the first time ever, I had a “Past Presidents’ Meeting.” Rosemary Watson, Joyce Stein and Daniel Levine made time in their busy schedules and were able to attend. There was no set agenda and we all checked our ego’s at the door. The net result was the free flow of discussion and ideas for almost two hours that resulted in some solid thoughts on where TBA goes from here….We are going to try and meet again in a few months.
Our most recent board meeting covered many agenda items and I was happy to see a few new faces join us to see how our organization is managed. It would be nice to see more of our congregants take an active interest and participatory roles in our congregation. At the end of the day, this is our community and we all have a vested interest in its future. Our next Board Meeting is scheduled for May 1st at 7pm. Please schedule it and try to attend.
We are preparing for our Annual Board Meeting which is tentatively slated for May 29th. During this meeting we will approve our 2014-2015 budget, vote on any amendments to the By-Laws that may be presented, elect our board of trustees and have a question and answer session. If you have an interest in serving on the board, please contact any current board member or myself with any questions.
And, as always, if you have an idea or event for TBA that you’d like to champion please let me know.
