Annual Membership Meeting Announcement

Tuesday, December 18th, at 6:15 PM, in conjunction with / immediately following the HRSCC holiday potluck, we will hold the annual HRCA membership meeting at Eastminster Presbyterian Church, 3229 MacDonald Road, Virginia Beach.  The meeting will be brief, with an anticipated ending time around 7:00 PM.
Members ages 16 and up are voting members.  Parents who wish to have a voice for their children in votes such as electing the Board of Directors or voting on changes to our Bylaws must join HRCA.  The membership fee is $5.  You may join and pay on site before the meeting starts.
We always welcome new candidates for our Board of Directors.  Duties include attending an in-person Board meeting usually once per year (after the annual membership meeting) and conducting business via e-mail.  You will be asked to vote on anything from major expenditures to filling vacancies on the board between elections to approving scholarship applications, etc.  It is not a large time commitment if you are not one of the officers with other duties (Treasurer, Secretary, President, Vice President).
Our current Board of Directors consists of:
President:  Christina Schweiss
