Getting a jump on first-Monday meeting date

East Village Association members will continue to meet on the first Monday of the month. The new board members find the early date fits their schedule, and members have come out for nearly two years of regular 7 p.m. Monday meetings in the Happy Village game room at Wolcott and Thomas.

Fourth of July or election dates often bumped EVA meetings off the calendar when the date was set as the first Tuesday, as set in the bylaws. The EVA board would reschedule those meetings, even though the postal service could never guarantee prompt notice of the change.

This year's board is proposing that the first sentence of Article X of the bylaws be amended to read: "General meetings shall be held monthly and shall be open to the public." That would allow the board to schedule the meeting time, date and place, and use e-mail and this website to spread the word on schedule changes.

The new language will be debated at the Monday, April 5 meeting, and members will vote on the proposal May 3.
