At the last Annual General meeting, I was elected to be the next President of the Northern Hills Community Association. I am excited and eager to serve the NHCA in this capacity.
The Board approved the addition of an Executive Director to manage the day to day operations of the Northern Hills Community Association, as the Board has identified that too much time was spent on operating issues and not enough was focused on strategic planning. We have the largest community association in the City of Calgary, serving almost 57,000 residents, and a higher emphasis will be placed on strategically understanding the needs and wants of our communities. We want to ensure that we deliver the most appropriate programs, services and advocate effectively for all of the Northern Hills residents.
The Creating Space Committee has worked hard advocating to Government to ensure that Northern Hills has adequate Schools and Health facilities. However, they are both lacking and we have plenty of work ahead of us to ensure that Government understands the needs of our communities. As everybody knows, the change in the Provincial Government gives us an opportunity to advocate and influence the new NDP Government, and we will be working hard to do this. Please help us by sending letters both to the municipal and provincial elected officials and voice your concerns and opinions on this matter. If enough people do send letters, Government will take notice.
The NHCA has around 1500 members. Did you know with a membership we have discounts at many, many places in and around our community! By becoming a Member you give us a strong, united voice that helps us advocate on your behalf with all levels of Government. It allows us to address issues that are important to you and share your voice with Government. If you have not yet purchased a membership, please sign up today.
The Board of Directors is looking forwarding to serving you and working towards building your community. If you would like to join the Board or have any suggestions, please contact the office and we would be happy to discuss them with you.
