Have you ever wondered who runs this community and how decisions are made? The three neighborhoods of Palliser, Bayview and Pump Hill represent 5400 homes, condos and apartments in Calgary. The PBP Community Association (PBPCA) manages our community centre, organizes events and programs, and publishes the community newsletter. We have an amazing budget of anywhere from $70,000 to $150,000 to spend in our community: events, facility and programs. This past year was one of exciting renewal as we made changes to the PBPCA budget, facility, and newsletter, and even were able to add new events and programs. Volunteers – people from this neighbourhood — run the entire operation. Whether it is a few hours a year or a few hours per month, we need volunteers like you to fill key board and committee positions at this November’s AGM.
The Annual General will be held on Thursday Nov 13, 2014, at 7:00pm, at the PBP Community Centre. Please mark your calendars for this opportunity to come and hear our reports and accomplishments from the past 12 months. We have five open board positions to fill and 2 nominations so far. Participation at board meetings (2 hour per month) is the primary commitment of this volunteer role, and we meet on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. We do not meet in July and August. Whether you consider a board position or a non-director position, this provides you with an opportunity to get involved in the community.
If you don’t feel like volunteering, then please support the PBPCA by purchasing your family membership, either online or from this newsletter. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get more information on available board positions and non-director volunteer opportunities. Areas where help is especially needed are: casino director; volunteer coordination; membership; events planning and execution; program development; sponsorship and fundraising; and general administrative help around the office. Training and workshops available.
