All residents (both in-district and out-of-district) are invited and encouraged to attend the annual WBNA meeting on Thursday, February 7, 7pm at the Community Center on Klattenhoff.
Each year, the WBNA elects its Board on the last Thursday of January. Both elementary schools have held their Science Fairs on that same night for the last few years and this prevented many of our families with young children from attending. We want to include as many residents as possible so this year we’ve moved our elections to the following Thursday.
We’re pleased to announce that Sarah Eckhardt, Travis County Commissioner Pct. 2, will join us on February 7 to discuss how Travis County government and Wells Branch residents can continue working together to move Travis County forward. She will be available for questions after speaking. Commissioner Eckhardt has 16 years of public service experience for Travis County. She is a mother of two and an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Public Affairs at the University of Texas. Sarah Eskhardt can be reached at facebook.com/saraheckhardtaustin, on Twitter @Sarah_Eckhardt and at SarahEckhardt.com.
We’ll finish up the evening with WBNA officer elections. As per our Bylaws, a nominating committee was selected in October to speak with residents interested in serving on the WBNA Board. Unfortunately, two of the committee members have been ill and were unable to conduct interviews prior to the publication of this issue. The nominating committee will be contacting interested parties this week and will post their recommended slate of candidates at wbna.us no later than 72 hours prior to the election. Additional nominations will be taken from the floor. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Many thanks to Tom Cheshire, Salvador Aguirre and Madonna Johnson for serving on the nominating committee.
We hope you’ll bring your ideas and suggestions for what you’d like to see from your neighborhood association in 2013. See you on the 7th!
