GHCA Monthly Meetings

This post is to inform the members of the Glebe Harbor Civic Association, on how your Board of Directors notify their members on when they hold their monthly meetings. The first thing I want to point out is that after I made several attempts to find out this information, in my opinion, I was simply blown off. This was back in 2018 and my statement is backed up by my interaction via emails. In fact, my interaction may have had something to do with our Association taking a vote on only holding three meetings a year, at our last general membership meeting in December of 2018. We did take that vote and we all agreed that only three meetings were needed, as per the current BODs statement that there was simply no reason for them to meet every month to discuss business, that did not exist.

That is why I was a little taken back as to why after I had tried to find out when they met, and again after we voted that we would only have three meetings a year, that they now decided to hold monthly meetings. So how do they now notify members of our association on when these meetings are held? As far as I know, they simply announce it on their Facebook page that was started on December 1st, 2018. I have asked them to place me on an email/mailing list to notify me when these monthly meetings are held and they refuse to do so.

It may be that they simply lack the knowledge to create this email list or they simply refuse to do so. As I was told, any information that they had to give to our membership, would come through their official FB page. So why is this a problem? Well, for those members who do not use the computer/internet services or have a FB account, how will they ever be informed? The quote below was posted on March 8th, 2019 at 7:38am.

There will be a meeting of the Glebe Harbor Civic Association Board of Directors on Tuesday, March 12, at 7:00 p.m. at the GHCP clubhouse. Interested persons will be given time before the meeting begins (up to 10 minutes in total) to bring issues to the Board.

It seems that they feel 4 days notice is sufficient to notify their members of a association meeting. I know the last meeting my wife and myself attended, one of our Board Members seemed to be appalled that we even showed up. This was her direct question to us.

Why are you even here?

I quickly informed her that we had every right to be at that meeting as she did. We had questions we wanted answers to. One question concerned combining all three associations together. At that time, we were informed that no progress had been made on that subject. So why do they only give 4 days notice concerning their last meeting? Maybe, they simply did not want anyone showing up. I know of at least one board member who carries that attitude and she made her point very well known!
