Oakley Community Council Third Thursday (10/21) Meeting Update.
Hello friends. Trying something different this week - with no pressing agenda items, there will no formal third Thursday meeting this month. However, the Board will be gathering at MadTree from 7-9 should you want to stop by and say hello to us. We will try to secure a spot that allows for some social distancing. If you’re interested in running for an OCC Board position this December, this will be a great opportunity to engage with us informally.
To be clear and in accordance with our bylaws, there will be no Board action taking place tomorrow evening.
We will meet again on November 2nd via Zoom. Be sure to cast your vote in the local election before hoping on to join us!
The next formal meeting is: Tuesday, November 2nd, 2021 7PM
Announcement: Oakley Community Council Annual Board Elections - Tuesday, December 7th.
Each year, board elections take place at the December General Meeting, held on the first Tuesday of December. Each of the twelve board members serves a three year term, so, in an election year, the terms of four members expires. This documents the procedure necessary to conducting elections for the Oakley Community Council Board. At this point, we do not know how many of the current board members will seek an additional 3 year term, but we do encourage anyone who may be interested to fill out an application, and feel free to reach out to OCC President Colleen Reynolds if you have any questions (firstname.lastname@example.org).
