NBHC September Meeting
Jefferson Park Community Center
3801 Beacon Avenue South
Seattle, WA 98108
Meeting Time: 7:00 p.m.
We will hold board elections at this upcoming meeting. The requirements and duties of a board member follow below.
Per our bylaws, any person residing, owning property or owning or operating a business on Beacon Hill may become a member of the North Beacon Hill Council. You must attend one prior NBHC meeting to become a member and be eligible to run for the Board of Directors. We welcome members of the community of any race, religion, color, gender, sexual orientation, age, handicap, national origin, income, and political affiliation.
The Board of Directors of the NBHC is elected by the Council to oversee and manages the affairs of the Council on behalf of the membership. The NBHC can have up to 15 Board members and the term of office of each Board member is two (2) years, with the terms of office staggered such that the terms of approximately one-half (l/2) of the directors will expire each year. Board members may be re-elected.
In order to be elected as a director, a nominee should demonstrate a strong commitment to fulfilling the goals of the Council. Board members attend monthly council and board meetings and act as a voice for the community. Directors help set up and run monthly membership meetings on topics of interest to the community. Directors may also participate in subcommittees, which focus on specific areas of interest.
The officers of the Council are a chairperson, a vice chairperson, a secretary, a treasurer and such other officers and assistant officers as may be deemed necessary by the board. No officer may hold more than one office. The chairperson presides at all meetings of the Board; ensures that the books, reports, statements and certificates required by Washington law are properly maintained and filed; may sign contracts or other instruments. The vice chairperson has the same duties as the chairperson and acts as the chair when needed. The secretary keeps records of the proceedings of the Board and membership, including minutes of all meetings. The Treasurer is responsible for all funds and investments of the Council and keeps accounts of the business and transactions. Each officer is annually elected by the Board and shall serve until his or her successor is duly elected and qualified.
