Election notice to LPNA members

The entire Board of Officers of LPNA comes up for election for the calendar year 2020 at LPNA’s next general meeting on Thursday, November 14, 2019, at 7 pm at the Community Room within the gym behind Los Paseos Elementary School.

Nominations of candidates for elected positions can be submitted through the LPNA web site, (About / Contact Us) or in writing (including by email) to any Officer, for 30 days, through November 12, 2019.

All members who attend the meeting in November may vote. All residents of the neighborhood over the age of 18 are considered to be members.

The current Officers of LPNA have expressed the intent to nominate themselves for the same positions in the election for 2019, with one exception. Amy Georgiades, Secretary, will not be nominated as she has other commitments that conflict in 2020. We are seeking nominations for the office of Secretary. Anyone interested should contact Greg Peck (president@lospaseosneighbors.org) to discuss the responsibilities of that position.

The elected positions and their duties are:

President:  The President shall prepare the agenda and preside at all meetings

of the Board and the membership, and shall facilitate activities of LPNA and exercise general powers of administration and management consistent with the office. The President shall appoint members of committees not elected, with approval of a majority of the Board. The President shall review bank statements and disbursements made. The President also acts as the official spokesperson of LPNA unless the Board chooses to create an elected Board position for a spokesperson.

Vice-President:  The Vice-President shall assist the President and assume the

duties of the President in that officer’s absence. The Vice-President shall coordinate the activities of committees and serve as acting chairperson of any committee that is lacking a chairperson. The Vice-President also shall be an authorized check signer in addition to the Treasurer.

Treasurer:  The Treasurer shall be held accountable for all funds and shall give

a financial update at least annually at a general meeting. The Treasurer shall receive, safeguard and disburse funds, keep proper financial records, propose budgets to the Board, and provide bank statements for review by the President.

Secretary:  The Secretary shall keep minutes of LPNA meetings and Board

meetings, and shall be responsible for correspondence, at the direction of the President. The Secretary shall make these records available for inspection as described in Article 9. The Secretary shall also maintain records of attendance by members at general and special meetings.

Member-at-Large:  The Board may create one or more positions for a Member-

or Members-at-Large. A Member-at-Large shall assist the Board in the execution of its responsibilities. In the event that another Officer is unavailable, a Member-at-Large may be requested to take over their responsibilities on a temporary basis.
