Houghton Valley Progressive Association AGM

This Sunday July 24, 4 pm on Zoom

After a bit of a “heads down” year for our local Community Association, it is time to set the scene for the next year and beyond with our Annual General Meeting. The election of people for the Association roles is as usual a key part of the meeting. Here is some background to set the scene:

  • The Houghton Valley Community was gifted the land and built the community hall nearly 100 years ago, and community members have been looking after the hall ever since. Rental income helps keep the hall maintained and provides funds for community projects.
  • The Houghton Valley Progressive Association is an Incorporated Society. There are some big legislative changes coming up that will mean we have to revise and upgrade our current constitution. This is an ideal opportunity to assess where we are and what we want for our community over the next 100 years! Getting to know your neighbours, being involved with local activities and caring for the place you love to live in is becoming increasingly important, and the HPVA needs to provide a strong foundation for that.
  • Currently there is a vacancy for Chairperson and Secretary. The Chairperson looks after relationships with outside groups as needed, and the Secretary attends to correspondence and minutes. Aside from the official roles, we welcome others to become part of a working group to plan the year to come.

If you are interested in a role, it would be great to have a discussion with you before the meeting. Please contact Ken. (Zoom details removed)
