The HBA cordially invites you to attend the next meeting where you may network with other business owners and promote your business.
HBA Annual Meeting
In the 3+ years that I have been a member of the HBA (formerly the HBPA) this is the first formal annual meeting. This meeting will be important to all Helena businesses as we re-position and revitalize the association.
There are two very important business items to be addressed and voted on by the members.
Amendment to the Bylaws
The first order of business will be to vote on adapting the amendment to the Bylaws. By now most of the members should have received a copy of the proposed amendments. If not click Bylaw Amendments to obtain a copy.
In order to vote you must have paid your dues in full by the date of the meeting.
For those of you who would like to join the HBA here is the HBA Membership Application. The dues are tax deductable and only $50.00 per year. The members whose dues are current are considered voting members and may vote on the Bylaw Amendments and the election of new board members at the April meeting.
The following process will be used to adapt the amendments to the Bylaws.
- Vote to repeal the current Bylaws
- Vote to approve the Bylaw Amendments
This will be a show of hands or voice vote.
Election of New Board Members
There are 3 board members whose term expires effective with the annual meeting. Those with terms expiring are Cris Nelson, Paul Schifanella, and Jim Wathen. New board members elected will serve a two year term.
The three whose term expire are eligible to be nominated again.
The following process will be followed:
- Submit nominees for election
- Paper ballot vote for 3 people
- Ballots counted by a committee
- Results announced
Immediately followiing the annual meeting there will be a meeting of the new board members. The purpose of this meeting is to elect the officers of the board.
All business owners are encouraged to attend. If you are not currently a member we encourage you to become a member. The annual fee is only $50 and it is tax deductible.
