Quarterly Council Meeting Set for Next Thursday, March 13
The attendees at the December 2013 Council meeting had great ideas for future quarterly Council meetings. March’s agenda incorporates several of the ideas that came forward in December. For instance, formal reports from the President, the Treasurer, Political Education, Collective Bargaining Advisory, and other committees will either be in the Council meeting packet in the mail or made available at the meeting. These reports will no longer be delivered orally at the meeting. If you have any questions regarding the information in the report, councilors should come prepared to ask them.
The Council meeting is at 7 p.m. at the Courtyard Marriott, 70 Constitution Ave., Concord.
It was requested that Board members and more chapters should be present for Council meetings. To that end, attendance will be taken by a roll call of the Board and chapters so we’ll all know, who’s in the house. [Chapter leaders, do your best to get at least some of your delegation to the meeting!]
Guest speakers will be invited to future meetings to address the Council on a topic of interest to the membership. We are fortunate that DOT Commissioner Clement will join the Council at the March 13 meeting. He will discuss the future of NH’s transportation system. All councilors are encouraged to attend to hear this important presentation.
A brief workshop will also be included in the meeting.
There will be a suggestion box at the registration table for members to drop in their ideas for future guest speakers and topics, for mini workshop topics, or to drop off other ideas they may have for future council meetings.
Please note: Chapter Presidents, you are reminded that you and your chapter leaders are constitutionally responsible to attend Council meetings. Please make every effort to attend and to have your chapter leaders (chapter officers and councilors) attend. Should you have new business of the council to bring forward, please notify Linda Frazer by March 10 at firstname.lastname@example.org or 603-271-3411, ext. 100.
