Village elections will be held this year on Saturday, April 27. Therefore, it is time for River Hill residents to think about who will represent them on the River Hill Community Association’s Board of Directors (RHBOD) and on the Columbia Association’s Board of Directors (CABOD). The RHBOD will have three open positions with terms May 1, 2019–April 30, 2021. The CABOD position is also a 2-year term.
To learn more about the roles and responsibilities of serving on the RHBOD and to help you determine whether you want to run for an elected position, interested residents are encouraged to attend an upcoming Board of Directors meeting, speak with current RHBOD members, and contact the Village Manager. Residents interested in serving on the CABOD are invited to attend an information session (see the article on page 5 for dates and times). 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.
Not interested in running for election but want to become more engaged with the community? The association still needs residents to serve on the Election Committee. Committee members oversee the voting process, organize the Candidates Forum when there is a contested election, and help 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 for more information.
