May General Membership Meeting Reminder

A reminder that the May General Membership meeting is tomorrow, Tuesday, May 22. We have translated our flyers for the meeting in Spanish, Vietnamese, and Russian in an effort to reach more people. Will you help us spread the word about the meeting by sharing any or all of these with folks who might benefit from joining us tomorrow? And let them know that we have childcare and interpretation available upon request, as part of our effort to make our meetings more inclusive and eliminate barriers to engagement.

Survey for Our Upcoming Public Safety Forum

All Lents Residents! Please take this survey to tell the LNA your concerns about public safety in our neighborhood. The results will help the LNA Livability Committee to focus on the community’s top issues as we nail down the agenda for the LNA’s Public Safety Forum scheduled for 7 pm on February 13 at Kelly School. Share the survey with your Lents-based friends & contacts. Mark the date on your calendars. Stay tuned for details here on our Web Site or the Lents Neighborhood Association Facebook Page.

Special Board Meeting January 13, 2018

The LNA Board is holding a Special Board Meeting to address recent LNA members’ grievances. Our goal is to discuss the grievances with those filed them, decide on whether there was a violation of our bylaws, decide on the best course of action (if applicable), and, finally, take a formal vote on our decisions.

This meeting is open to the public and the media. However, the Board may go into Executive Session before taking a formal vote.

After the meeting, the LNA Board will share a written report of our findings and final decisions with the LNA general membership.

The meeting will be held in the Community Room at NAYA Generations, 8510 SE Steele St, Portland, OR 97266.
