At last year’s AGM, the LRNA membership delivered a mandate to the board to review our bylaws. We struck a committee of board members and neighbourhood residents, and over a six-month period, we combed, edited, recommended, and re-edited the bylaws. The committee presented a final draft to the LRNA board in April, and with a few changes, the board approved a draft document for the membership to approve at this year’s AGM on 16 June at 19:00 in the Theatre Gallery of the downtown branch of the Lethbridge Public Library. You can find the recommended bylaw changes at londonroad.org.
Our membership also mandated (as per our current bylaws) that the LRNA present audited financial statements for the 2013/2014 and 2014/2015 fiscal years. Our finance committee has been hard at work organizing our financial records and finding someone qualified to audit them. We will have them ready at our AGM for your approval.
Also, at this year’s AGM will be a presentation on the progress the City of Lethbridge has made on updating the London Road Area Redevelopment Plan.
Some of our board members are stepping down, so there will be opportunities for neighbourhood residents to serve on our board and make a difference in the strategic direction of LRNA.
Please join us on 16 June to learn more about the ARP, to have your say in the updated LRNA bylaws, to approve our audited financial statements, and perhaps volunteer on our board.
