The River Hill Community Association is led by a seven-member Board of Directors (RHBOD) elected by residents of the village ages 18+. The members of the board serve two-year staggered terms which helps to ensure continuity. There are no restrictions on the number of terms a member may serve. This year, there will be four open positions on the Board of Directors each having a term running May 1, 2020 – April 30, 2022. Village Elections will be held on Saturday, April 25.
Now is the time for River Hill residents to consider what changes are needed for the community to continue to be a desirable place to live, how the association can nurture and strengthen the sense of community, and whether they are ready to commit to a leadership role. The RHBOD typically meets one Monday evening each month, except in March and April when there are two meetings. To find out more about the responsibilities of serving on the RHBOD and to help you determine whether you want to run for an elected position, residents are invited to attend an upcoming Board of Directors meeting, speak with current board members, and contact the Village Manager. Residents planning to run for election must complete a nomination petition containing a minimum of ten, verifiable signatures from River Hill residents ages 18+. Candidate nomination petitions will be available beginning March 1 at Claret Hall, online, and in the March newsletter. All petitions must be submitted to the Election Committee by March 21.
The association is currently seeking residents to serve on the Election Committee. This is a short-term commitment and association staff directly supports the committee. Committee members oversee the voting process, organize the Candidates Forum when there is a contested election, and help staff the polls on election day. Members of the association eligible to vote may serve on this committee. Please contact Susan Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org or 410-531-1749 to volunteer.
