North Roslyn Civic Association
Board Meeting Minutes
May 17, 2018
The Board met at Turnberry Tower social room starting at 7:05 pm. Board members present were John Hummel, Terri Prell, and Judy Brand. Board members Nicole Merlene, Sylvia Kendra, and Atima O’Mara were absent, as was Treasurer Rick Froelich.
1. The next Community Meeting is scheduled for 6/7/18 at 7 pm at the Holiday Inn. Speaker Ken Dennis from ACPD will talk about Identity Theft and Computer Fraud. Ways to advertise this meeting, including Face Book and flyers, were suggested. Terri will ask Nicole to help with Face Book.
2. For the September 6 Community Meeting there are two possible topics: Queens Court (the APAH project), and Roosevelt Island within the province of the Park Service. The Board will wait to make that decision until after the June meeting John and Terri will have with APAH.
3. An NRCA Banner/Tablecloth was purchased for use at community events such as Movie Nights and the Book Fair. John will secure a Square Card Reader to collect membership dues via credit card payment on the spot from new members. He will contact the company so that other Board members can use the Square Card Reader as well. There will be a need for people to volunteer to man the table for Friday Movie Nights.
4. Business Sponsorships continue to be explored. In addition to advertisements on the Forum, one of our sponsors, Elim Tailors, was given direct support with advice about her lease. This is a good example of how Board Member talents might benefit local businesses. In addition to the $250 Sponsorship other ideas such as one-time community events or ongoing community projects are ideas. Several sites in the community –Queens Court project (APAH) and the schools at the Wilson Site (H-B Woodlawn and Stratford Program) should be considered for the development of joint community/business partnerships. We will study the needs of both and how potential projects might have appeal for businesses new to Rosslyn.
5. Central Place Observation Deck will be opening this Summer. We will explore ways to be involved with this.
6. A letter from the President was recently sent to County Board Member John Vihstadt regarding pedestrian safety crossings at Nash and Key Streets. It included a request for a written response.
Meeting adjourned at 8:10. Respectfully Submitted, Judy Brand, Secretary
