Agenda For Next
General Meeting
Agenda items for the January 23rd meeting will include: introduction of new officers, briefing on capital expansion plans from St. Mark's church, neighborhood police report from the Austin Police Department, brief close-out reports from last year's committees, year 2001 goals development and refinement, and Treasurer's report and membership renewal reminder.
Newsletter The newsletter will be printed and distributed quarterly, twice a year to BHNA membership only and twice a year to the entire neighborhood.

For the January issue, Joe will provide Emily with articles on: BHNA calendar for the coming year, agenda for January general meeting, neighborhood police activities, and a request for areas of concern within the neighborhood to support BHNA goals development.

Tom Joyce will provide an article on St. Mark's expansion plans. Emily will include a membership renewal reminder and a solicitation for advertising. In the interests of making our distribution deadline, Rafael will check on prices for having the print vendor fold and prepare the newsletter for distribution. Emily will have the newsletter printed and ready for distribution to the entire neighborhood by January 13th, and Robin will help coordinate distribution.

Calendar, Goals, and Committee Assignments Joe provided a draft calendar that included basic items, and he requested committee members to email him a list of any major events that should be added to the calendar.

Using the newsletter and the January meeting, Joe will solicit membership concerns for BHNA goals development and refinement.

Joe provided a list of committees for 2001 and solicited recommendations for leaders of those committees. Discussion yielded agreement that committees should have goals that can be completed within the year.

Miscellaneous Business Topics of general discussion included:
  • Ways to involve more neighbors in BHNA meetings and activities
  • The advantages and constraints of using a listserver for publicizing BHNA information: John recommended that we invite a subject matter expert to a future meeting.
  • The possible need to replace one of our three neighborhood meeting reminder signs: Robin will follow up with Mark Reinking and, possibly, Carl Newsome.

The meeting adjourned shortly after 9 pm.

Respectfully submitted,
Sharon Slagle
Recording Secretary
