So, as of last Saturday, I am now the president of the board of the Eastside Neighborhood Association. (Why did C step down? A long story, that abbreviates as a relay race of sorts.)
My main thing is just to wrap up old projects (the god-forsaken sign project!) and to write things down. Like planning for the annual picnic and who attends meetings, pays dues, etc. We are not a homeowner’s association, thank goodness, but more of a loose civic association working with the city, so membership is something of a fuzzy concept.
I just finished a blast of emails, note-writing, and massive Google Docs uploading. It actually feels pretty good. I hope I can do something good for this neighborhood that I love.
