Congratulations and welcome to our new Directors, each of whom shall serve a term of three years (2018 – 2021). Thank you to all of the candidates who stood for election this year. The Association thrives on the spirit of volunteerism.
Bylaws Election Results
The Revised Bylaws failed to get the necessary 2/3 support from the Membership.
The vote on the Bylaws was very, very close. Out of 418 valid ballots cast there were 273 in favor, 115 opposed, and 30 left blank. The vote in favor (counting all ballots) is at 65.3%, just a tiny 4 vote margin below the 2/3 threshold required for adoption.
The ENA will continue to to be governed in accordance with the 2007 Bylaws, and will move forward with close attention to clarification and interpretation where the current Bylaws fail to provide clear guidance.
An effort to revise Bylaws can be considered at anytime. It will be up to the new Board, or future Boards, to decide when and if they’d like to revisit the matter.
SPECIAL MEETING – ENA ELECTION OF OFFICERS
DUNIWAY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL LIBRARY
THURSDAY, MAY 31, 2018
The Eastmoreland Neighborhood Association is calling a Special Meeting for the election of ENA Board Officers. The agenda for this meeting is limited to this sole and express purpose.
The positions of President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary are open for nominations from the floor. Nominees will be elected by the Board of Directors. Officers are elected for a one year term, and must have served on the board during the prior year.
Following the election of officers, the Special Meeting will adjourn.
E-mail list replacement
The Eastmoreland Neighborhood Association is setting up email distribution in a new account management system. Making this change gives us the opportunity to streamline our communications as well as address membership concerns about privacy and the integrity of our membership records.
What does this mean for you?
“Yes, I would like to receive email updates from the ENA!” Great! You will need to opt-in via a two-step verification process using the link below.
“I’m ALREADY on your email list.”
Thanks for subscribing! However, you will STILL need to opt-in using the link below, or you will be dropped from our list on December 31, 2017.
“No, thank you, I am not interested.” No problem! If you would prefer to NOT receive email communications from the ENA, you do not need to do anything. Our current mailing list will be phased out by December 31, 2017.
The Eastmoreland Neighborhood Association respects your privacy. We will not share your personal information with any third party. Any personal information you share with us will only be used for official ENA business.
Click on Crime Statistics above or go to: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/71978. First, you want to choose the neighborhood association. You can either select it in the scroll down box above the map or you can click on it on the map. Then you can select the dates/months you want to see and then you can print them out. These statistics only go back as far as May of 2015 when they began loading the information into the new program. That gives you a two year window, so it’ll show a little depth of view. At that time, they reclassified some crimes, too, so even though it’s not a long view, the comparisons will be apples to apples from May 2015 forward.
Preparing for the big one is a matter of life and death. The ENA Emergency Preparedness Committee (EPC) has prepared an emergency earthquake resource guide, “When Disaster Strikes Eastmoreland.” After downloading, print it and store with your emergency items. Click here for the guide. Click here for some quick tips, “A Little Prep Now, Big Pay-off Later,” also prepared by the EPC.
