East CAC meets – bylaws, elections, and Animal Control!

The East CAC will hold its January 2012 meeting Monday at 7 PM at Lions Park Community Center, 516 Dennis Avenue. http://is.gd/nwDQ. The meeting will be streamed live on http://www.eastraleigh.org/stream.html.

We’ve got a big meeting ahead! First we’ll adopt our first set of bylaws since 1980, creating co-chair positions instead of chair/vice-chair. We’ll then promptly vote to elect our new CAC leadership. In addition to our usual announcement from parks and police, we’ll have a representative from Animal Control meet with us to discuss ongoing problems with dogs in our community.

On a personal note, this month marks my last as chair of the East CAC. It has been an unbelievably rewarding experience for me an a true honor to serve my neighbors here in the very best community in Raleigh. I want to thank you for the trust you have placed in me and for granting me the opportunity to lead. I also want to thank my partners in the CAC leadership: Charlene Willard with Community Services, CAC Vice-chair Van Alston, CAC Secretary Sue Sturgis. I also want to thank the volunteers on our committees whose hard work has improved our CAC and community. It’s always been a team effort.

This is an exciting time for the East CAC! We have accomplished so much and more good things are on the horizon. I leave the CAC in the very capable hands of its new leadership: Emrys Treasure, Deborah Ford, and Ginger Deason. I am excited about our new leaders and the opportunities for growth we’ll have.

I’m not going anywhere, though. I continue to chair Raleigh’s Parks board, and I have now taken leadership of the Raleigh CAC, working with the leadership of all of Raleigh’s CACs. You’ll still see me at meetings and in the neighborhood as well.

Below is the full agenda. Thanks again for the opportunity to serve you, and may you all have a wonderful New Year!
