CNA General Meeting/Happy Hour, August 20, 2014

Neighborhoo Happy Hour MeetingIn acknowledgement that it’s just too darn hot to get much done, the CNA steering committee has opted to hold the August 20 Cherrywood quarterly neighborhood meeting as a happy hour at in.gredients, 7:30-9:00 p.m.

The three candidates for the District 9 seat on the Austin City Council, Kathie Tovo, Chris Riley, and Erin McGann have all confirmed that they will attend. This will be an opportunity to chat informally with them about our neighborhood’s concerns.

The only formal agenda item for the happy hour meeting is a vote on proposed changes to the CNA bylaws. The changes were suggested by the bylaws revision taskforce and endorsed by the Steering Committee. They fix some underlying problems with current bylaws around the issue of how neighbors are informed about the topics that will be addressed at the quarterly meetings. The vote on this single item will be held at 8:00 p.m. Read more about the proposal in this article by Rich Heyman.

in.gredients will offer the following specials to neighbors attending the happy hour: $1 off drinks, and $9 panini/pint and $6 pizza/pint deals.

The Upper Boggy Creek Contact Team is planning to organize a candidates’ forum this fall, so there will be an opportunity for a more formal discussion soon. If you want to learn more about the candidates and the new District 9 here, check out the links below:
