At GHI, the Board of Directors, which sets policies and makes decisions, depends on the work of committees and task forces, which study specific problems referred by the Board and suggest solutions. There are several Board-appointed standing committees including architectural review, buildings, companion animal, finance, investment, woodlands, and communications and a smaller number of task forces that work on short-term projects such as ad-hoc yard line, addition maintenance program, by-laws, and rental task force. The committees and task forces generally meet once a month, and on February 27, I attended a meeting of the Communications Committee.
The Communications Committee’s charter states: “To enhance communication with and among members of the Cooperative and the staff of Greenbelt Homes, Inc. through informing, educating, and reporting using a variety of communications channels as outlined in this Charter, including print and electronic media and community events. We provide strategic direction across these communication platforms to assist the Board and staff of GHI in their efforts to improve communications with and among members and produce quality external communications that reflect a leading Cooperative in accordance with the vision of the Board.”
Attending tonight’s meeting at the start are from left Ed Fallon, Marat Moore, Kristi Fletcher (Chair), Sheri Swaim (Staff Liaison), Anna Socrates, and Jo-Anne Fournier. The committee meets in the front lobby of GHI administration building.
Members of the Greenbelt 75th Anniversary Committee were appointed by the City Council, and the Committee has been meeting every month since April 2010 to plan a year-long series of events to celebrate Greenbelt’s 75th anniversary in 2012. On February 13, I attended the first full committee meeting of the year and took these pictures.
The committee meets in the Greenbelt Community Center. Attending tonight’s meeting are from upper right Lois Rosado, Betty Timer, Barbara Havekost, Barbara Young, Carol Malveaux (co-chair), Isabelle Gournay, Frank DeBernardo, Janubi Devendra, Dave Mills (co-chair), Sheila Maffay-Tuthill, and Megan Searing Young (staff liaison to the city).
