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.

Aug 22nd Meeting

There is NO meeting this Thursday August 22nd at the Santa Teresa Library. Instead, there is a tour of the Metcalf Energy Center, and participants were notified via e-mail. If you have interest and would like to tour the facility, let us know and we will arrange additional tours. They can only handle about 20 people per tour, and this first tour is already full. The setup for this occurred spontaneously. Members of the LPNA maililng list received first priority. If you are not on the mailing list and would like to join, notify us via the Contact page

LPNA meeting May 23, 2019

Our meeting will be at the Santa Teresa Branch Library at 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 23.

We’ll have the usual LPNA Business and Updates, and the High Speed Rail Authority will make main presentation. They will focus on their “preferred alignments” for the Monterey Corridor, from Blossom Hill Rd. to Metcalf Rd. The HSRA will have crucial updates for this section. Come and view their detailed plans and get answers to your questions.
