A bit of controversy exists over whether Groucho Marx was the first to say, "I don't want to belong to any club that will accept me as a member," but laughter aside, the point carries weight -- especially if it's a polite way to say: "Sorry, I'm too busy."
I received a letter from the Land Park Community Association asking if I would like to volunteer my services to serve on the LPCA board. For various reasons, I am unable to raise my hand and, quite frankly, I believe that Land Park residents might be happier without a bunch of Land Park real estate agents sticking their collective noses into the board. But how about YOU?
There are 11 new board spots available at Land Park Community Association. If you'd like to throw your hat into the ring, the process is very simple. The LPCA Elections Committee asks that you submit an application with these 3 things before April 3:
- Provide biographical information about yourself, e.g., length of residency in Land Park, interests, educational and/or professional background, interests, volunteer experience, etc. (Up to a maximum of 75 words).
Provide a brief statement on the contributions you’d like to make to the Land Park Community Association (Up to a maximum of 150 words).
Provide a digital photograph of yourself, too (email to sc.rose at comcast.net).
Then, go to the Candidates' Night on April 22nd to shake hands with other members and answer questions about why you are the perfect candidate for the Board. This special meeting will be held at the Eskaton Monroe Lodge at 3325 Freeport Blvd., beginning at 6:30 PM.
Elections will be held at the LPCA Annual Meeting at the Land Park Tower Theatre on April 29th.
