Jan 3 2019 General Membership Meeting

The full Executive Committee and Officers, plus Monica Montgomery, District 4 Councilmember

We held our first General Membership Meeting of 2019 on January 3. Due to a scheduling problem beyond the control of the new Executive Committee, our normal meeting room was unavailable, and we had to make do with the 3rd Floor Lobby of the Jacobs Center. We are grateful for the patience and forbearance of our Membership, who seemed to adjust to the uncomfortable accommodations in a spirit of togetherness and hope.

After the invocation by Rev. Dr. J. Lee Hill, Jr., Senior Pastor, Christian Fellowship Congregational Church, UCC, the meeting focused on the ceremonial installation of the 2019-2020 Officers and Executive Committee. There was also an address from our new President, Clovis Honoré, and a presentation on Lupus from Shakita Jones, a member of our Executive Committee.

We had a delicious (if slightly tardy) dinner from El Pollo Grill. Also of note was the provision of child care; this will be a regular feature of our meetings going forward. If you have children you can’t leave at home, don’t let that stop you from joining the meeting!

Reverend Gerald Brown closed the meeting with a benediction.

If you are interested in the reports and other information presented at the meeting, you will find them in the Meeting Packet. You may also read the Meeting Minutes.

Please note: the February 7th General Membership Meeting will be held in Room 389 of the Jacobs Center. The March meeting will return to the Community Room. Thank you for your patience with us as we return things to order.
