Advisory Committee is composed of the Chairs of all standing committees and the Trustees. Advisory Committee shall present nominations for Committees at the January Meeting, and has historically set the agenda for the up-coming Town Assembly Meeting. The Chairperson of Advisory shall act as Parliamentarian at Town Assembly Meetings and shall offer for review and interpretation any codified reference pertinent to the discussion on the floor and shall provide points of parliamentary procedure as they arise during meeting.
What drives me to volunteer for Advisory Committee Chair is a desire to serve all residents of the Village of Arden equally for their good and welfare, following the duties of this position and obeying all Town governing documents and practices. I am available to attend all 4 scheduled meetings per year, and my door will always be open to anyone who has a question or comment, and I vow to acknowledge such with a written response within a day or two.
In the recent past, I have attended all Advisory meetings and understand well how it operates, I am familiar with the job descriptions of every Committee that comes to the table with topics they want to discuss, and I intend to carry out the duties of Advisory Chair according to Robert’s Rules of Order in an orderly fashion, giving everyone an opportunity to speak, including visitors.
Thank you for your vote!
