We will use this platform for communication, meetings, announcements and information archives.
Stored documents such as membership list and protocol can be made viewable to membership. We will however continue to upload meeting minutes to the website so that they are fully accessible to the public.
Upcoming Training Series:
As you may have seen on Facebook many issues within our community are coming to light. These issues are deeply concerning to all of us. In an effort to bridge the gap and try to mend the community the BOA and Club Q are partnering to present a series of educational workshops focusing on the issues impacting us all. The first of which is the Transgender Awareness workshop scheduled for next Tuesday night at Club Q. We have received several offers to present workshops form partner organizations as well as other courts. The complete list of courses that will be offered as well as virtual options, dates and times will be announced as soon as the schedule is solidified.
A Grievance was submitted to the BOA. The issues outlined are being reviewed and addressed in accordance with Article 22 of our Bylaws and Policy 7 of the Policy Manual.
At this point we have not moved to reschedule Coronation, however, in light of COVID-19, we are working closely with our host hotel and venue to ensure that all social distancing and safety concerns are observed. We will re-evaluate the situation in the third quarter and give updates at the annual regents meeting.
As always, we invite you to attend our monthly BOA meeting the 3rd Saturday of each month currently held at Club Q at 12pm.
If you are not able to attend let myself or any member of the BOA know if you have questions or concerns, we are happy to address them with directly.
