Greetings!
 
 
Please join us tonight, July 9th at 7:30PM for our monthly meeting at the Harborview Health Center, 178 Ogden Ave at Franklin St - 1st Floor Cafeteria. There will be a representative from the JC Police Department on hand to listen to any concerns. 

It will be an impactful, yet shortened meeting to allow everyone to watch the Goonies in Riverview Park!  

IMPORTANT: WE WILL BE VOTING ON PROPOSED CHANGES TO THE RNA BYLAWS (see proposed changes below)

We will hear from Mory Thomas and Nick Caballero about Washington Park Association's "Washington Park Wednesdays" programming and volunteer opportunities with their park maintenance program. Representatives from RNA committees will also provide updates with community advocacy and upcoming events. 




Proposed Bylaw Amendments are up for a Final Vote

RNA Board of Directors is proposing a change in the bylaws to state what should happen if an officer or director moves outside the RNA boundaries during the course of his or her term, but still lives in the Heights.  To promote continuity and allow for the recruitment of dedicated replacements, the Board is proposing permitting directors and officers to finish their one-year term, if the board approves and if the director or officer still lives in the 07307 area code.  We will take a formal vote on this amendment during the July 2019 general membership meeting on July 9th.  

The changes are underlined and highlighted below:

Article III Members

Section 4. Termination and Suspension.

If a Member moves out of the geographical area, or sells his or her property or business, membership in the organization is terminated, except for a Director and/or Officer who may complete their term of service provided that: (i) they continue to reside within the boundaries of Jersey City Heights (07307 zip code) and (ii) a majority of the remaining Board approves. A Member may be suspended or expelled for cause by a majority vote of the Board only after receiving due notice of a hearing before the Board and an opportunity for the Member to be heard by the Board. "Cause" for suspension or expulsion includes, but is not limited to, a Member's breach of these bylaws or failure to abide by any Code of Conduct implemented by the Board pursuant to Article IV, Section 8 herein. A Member whose suspension or expulsion arises from failure to meet eligibility requirements of membership in RNA, such as by failure to pay the annual membership fee, shall be given a reasonable opportunity to cure the defect.

Article V Board of Directors

Section 2. Qualifications, Number, and Election.
At the time of election, Directors shall be at least eighteen (18) years of age and shall reside within the geographic area of RNA.

Section 16. Relocation within the Boundaries of Jersey City Heights
In the event a Director moves out of the geographic boundaries of RNA during the course of their term, the Director's membership in RNA may continue and they may complete their term of service, provided that: (i) they continue to reside within the boundaries of Jersey City Heights (07307 zip code) and (ii) a majority of the remaining Board approves.


Article VI Officers

Section 6. Relocation within the Boundaries of Jersey City Heights
In the event an Officer moves out of the geographic boundaries of RNA during the course of their term, the Officer's membership in RNA may continue and they may complete their term of service, provided that: (i) they continue to reside within the boundaries of Jersey City Heights (07307 zip code) and (ii) a majority of the remaining Board approves.
