Fellow Members; This memo is
to alert you to the changes that were adopted at our last meeting for
meeting dates for 2008, in hopes that we all can plan around these
First, starting in January the "Advisory Committee" meetings
will be held on the "2nd Thursday" of each month
at Alamance Presbyterian Church at 7PM in the meeting room on the first
floor where we have met several times during the past year. We are aware
that this may not be the best night for some, however we felt that firming a
date on the calendar would help in future planning of guest speakers &
programs in advance. We encourage each member to plan around this new date
Second, as we move into 2008 it is imperative that we
develop "Strategic Initiatives" for own growth from a new Community
Association with "generalized goals" to an Association with "Strategic Goals
and Actions". In preparation for our January meeting I ask that each of us
concentrate on what additions or changes in purpose we should adopt.
- Promote community growth
- Improve access to public
water and sewer.
- Promote economic
development and opportunities.
- Further the common good
and general welfare of residents.
Some suggestions for thought;
- Be the preferred community voice for
Southeast Guilford County.
- Provide the structure and means to engage
the community on a sustainable basis in planning & development,
- Be the voice behind the promotion of, or
opposition to, development projects being proposed in the community. (watch
- Influence and participate in the decision
making process, to protect the interests of the Southeast Guilford County
I encourage each of you to provide your own
ideas and thoughts as we move into the new year.
To do this we must continue to find
individuals who are willing to take ownership of committee's. We also need
to organize the Association in such a way to be able to focus on our stated
purpose and to administer implementation of out strategic plan. How will we
breakdown each purpose? Goals, Strategies, Actions?
Please have your thoughts to me by January 2nd!
Wishing each of you a Very Merry Christmas
and a Prosperous and Healthy New Year!!
