April 14th is the designated Annual Meeting when the MCC Board makes a Report of the Club. Board Members will not only update you on their committee work, but will include some proposed changes to the Club Bylaws and a preview of our new website. Your questions and comments are appreciated and will be used to guide us in the coming year.
The Annual Meeting is also when we hold our Board Elections. This year we will be electing a new President, Secretary and three Trustees.
Montlake has a unique reputation as an activist community. When you hear the Board Members speak, you will get a glimpse of what that means. Over the years, the Board has taken the lead in guiding not only the Montlake Community, but also Seattle to make decisions that we all benefit from. We are right in the middle of one of those epic moments for Montlake and need your participation.
The Board functions best when it comprises new members with fresh perspectives along with the Montlake veterans. Please consider giving Montlake your experience and time. You can contact me or any Board Member with your questions or interest in a position.
I had lived in Montlake only five years when I became President. I knew very little about the community other than the Business District and my immediate neighbors. I had much to learn and many of you were my tutors. You took the time to meet with me over coffee at Fuel or in your home and answer my questions and give me some history and your advice. I quickly learned that it was you that had made my community a choice place to live and I needed to reciprocate. It has been both a rewarding and challenging journey.
