BCC Annual Meeting

Please join us on Sunday, February 5th at 5 pm for the 2023 Brooktondale Community Center annual meeting. We will hold a potluck dinner at 6 pm, following the meeting.

The Bylaws of the Brooktondale Community Center Corporation specify a particular “Order of business” to be followed at all Annual Meetings of the Corporation, as well as other details. The main purpose of this meeting will be to highlight the accomplishments from last year and to see friends and neighbors. Three current board members are willing to serve another three-year term, Emily Adams, Briana Beltran, and Margaret Frank, with Lucy Gagliardo agreeing to another one year term. We do not need to add new board members (although new people may ask to join, up until January 29th).

The Bylaws of the Brooktondale Community Center Corporation specify the following “Order of business” to be followed at all Annual Meetings of the Corporation:

A. Introduction of continuing and departing members of Board of Directors.

B. Roll call of Officers.

C. Report of the Chair or Co-Chairs.

D. Report of the Treasurer, including a presentation of the Annual Financial Report.

E. Report of the Secretary.

F. Reports of Committees of the Board.

G. Reports of Committees of the Corporation.

H. New Business.

I. Concerns of the Community.

J. Report on new Members approved by the Board per Article 1 Section 3.

K. Election of Directors.

L. Adjournment.

The procedure for the election of new directors at the Annual Meeting is based on Article III of the Bylaws.

New Directors will be elected by means of a balloting procedure. All Members in attendance will be asked to vote on nominees presented by the Nominating Committee. They may cast votes for those nominees only. (Instead of nominations from the floor or write-in candidates, the Bylaws provide for “voluntary” nominations, as explained below.) For a nominee to be elected to the Board of Directors, he or she must receive a YES vote from a majority of voters. If there are more nominees than vacancies on the Board, the nominees receiving the most YES votes will be declared Directors. In the event of a tie, voters will be asked to choose from among the tied candidates.

Elected nominees will serve as Directors for three years, from January 2023 to January 2026. Anyone 18 years or older residing in the Town of Caroline or within a three-mile radius of the Brooktondale Community Center, 526 Valley Road in Brooktondale, is considered a Member of the Corporation and entitled to vote.

In keeping with provisions of the Bylaws, the Nominating Committee will also present “voluntary” or self-nominated candidates who have informed it, in writing or by email, of their willingness to serve three-year terms. Such a notice along with a biographical sketch must be received by the Committee at least a week before the Annual Meeting – that is, by January 29th for the meeting on February 5th.

There have been many exciting new projects at the BCC in the past year. These include:

  • A new covered area behind the main building

  • A gaga ball pit

  • A repaired and resealed parking lot

  • Newly paved paths to the large pavilion and rear entrances to the main building

  • A new ramp making the Old Fire Hall fully accessible to all

  • A walking path around the field

  • An array of gorgeous barn quilts hung on the side of the Old Fire Hall, made by our very own board chair, Nancy Hall

 

Thank you, Nancy! And thank you, to all who helped make these wonderful additions to the BCC possible.
