ADHDA to Hold Election for Open Board Positions

Mon, Sep 13, 2010

The Astoria Downtown Historic District Association will hold an election this fall in order to fill the positions of three board members whose terms are expiring at the end of this year. Newly elected directors will serve a term of three years, beginning in January 2011 and continuing through December 2013. The board includes nine directors who meet at least once per month, in addition to attending the organization’s monthly general meeting and serving various ADHDA committees and projects.

“We are definitely a working board,” said ADHDA President Tiffany Estes, “but everyone brings their unique talents and experience to the table and that helps keep things manageable,” she added.
The organization recently began working with RARE (Resource Assistance for Rural Environments) Participant Blaire Buergler, who will serve the organization in a fulltime capacity through July 2011. “Blaire has only been working with us for a week, but I’m already beginning to appreciate how much more we’ll be able to accomplish with her help,” Estes said. “The board is very excited to have her here with us,” she added.

Individuals wishing to vote in the upcoming election of new directors must register as a member with the organization by October 12. Individuals wishing to add their name to the ballot as a candidate for an open board position must return a completed nomination petition by September 30. Contact Blaire Buergler at 503.791.7940 or blaire@astoriadowntown.com to request a membership form or nomination petition.

Ballots will be mailed to registered ADHDA members October 15 and must be returned no later than November 4. New directors will be announced at the ADHDA general meeting November 5.
