Friends of White Flint 2013 Annual Meeting
February 21, 2013 7PM
Friends of White Flint will hold its 2013 Annual Meeting at 7PM on Thursday, February 21, 2013, at JBG’s offices, 4445 Willard Avenue, Suite 400, in Chevy Chase. Immediately following the Annual Meeting presentations, the FoWF Board will hold a Board meeting. Both meetings are open to the public, and all members of Friends of White Flint are encouraged to attend. RSVPs are welcome, but not required, by emailing Info@WhiteFlint.org.
The Annual Meeting will include reports from Directors and from Executive Director Lindsay Hoffman on progress in White Flint, and in Friends of White Flint. Like White Flint itself, FoWF went through some substantial changes in 2012, and this is a good time to hear about them.
In addition, the Annual Meeting is part of the 2013 FoWF Board nominating process. Each year, one Director is elected (or re-elected) to a three-year term from each of the three groups of voting members: Residents, Businesses, and Property Owners/Developers. Associate members are not eligible to vote or be nominated to the Board.
This year, the terms of FoWF Co-Chairs Suzanne Hudson (Residents), Barnaby Zall (Businesses), and Evan Goldman (Property Owners/Developers) are ending, and need to be filled. The existing Co-chairs were the founding Chairs of FoWF and may run again to be Directors.
Any member of FoWF is eligible to be nominated for election to the Board in the appropriate category. A person may nominate him- or herself or may be nominated by someone else. Nominations will be accepted by e-mail in advance of the meeting until February 20, and may be made during the meeting from the floor. Nominees will have to fill out a nomination form (available here: 2013 Election Nomination Form). This year’s elections process is on an accelerated timetable to accommodate the meeting schedule.
The actual election will be by vote of the Board of Directors at the meeting following the Annual Meeting. In addition, after the vote for Directors, the Board will elect officers for the upcoming year. The Board will also consider a resolution amending the Bylaws to clarify that Directors remain in office until the election of their successors. The Board may consider other matters as well.
Hope to see you at the 2013 Friends of White Flint Annual Meeting!
