Yes you read the headline correctly. The Helena Business and Professional Association is about to become Helena Business Association. Your board of directors has been working diligently to re-vitalize your association. Now it is time to step up and help.
At our next meeting – March 6, 2012 – 8:00am – La Reunion – we will hold a round table discussion to review the annual meeting scheduled for the first Tuesday of April (4/3). Here are two of the topics to discuss:
- Changing the Bylaws of the Association. This will require two votes by the majority of the members present. The first vote will be to repeal the current bylaws; and the second vote will be to approve the new bylaws.
- Three of the current board members term will expire – Cris Nelson, Jim Wathen, and Paul Schifanella. Anyone whose dues are paid by the date of the annual meeting is eligible to run and to vote. Be thinking about whether you would like to run or nominate someone.
After the annual meeting there will be a brief meeting of the new board to elect officers.
Over the next few months there are plans to create a new logo; update the website; and much more.
We are close to two events that the HBA sponsors and as always we will need volunteers to make them successful. They are:
- Buck Creek Festival
- Sundown Cinemas (Friday night Movies in the Park)
I hope to see everyone at the meeting next Tuesday!
