FHA Board Meeting Notes – January 2017

TO KEEP EVERYONE UP TO DATE ON WHAT THE FHA BOARD IS DOING, HERE ARE SOME OF THE ITEMS THAT WERE DISCUSSED OR DECIDED AT THE JANUARY, 2017 BOARD MEETING:

  • Jennifer Gennari led a discussion of the Board's vision for the FHA. There was strong support for the FHA to build community cohesiveness. Jen will draft a vision statement based on this discussion.
  • Last year's tour did not generate enough income so we will be looking at a larger Tour this year.
  • The new Floating Times will debut at the March 4 Annual Meeting. Everyone in the community will receive an invitation to view the newsletter online and to subscribe for weekly updates. The new format will allow for more timely articles and will be searchable.
  • Dock reps were again asked to check on the numbers that were handed out to be put on the water side of homes. 
  • Incumbent FHA Officers were re-elected for two more years. They are: Katherine Boschetto, President; Flo Hoylman, Vice President; Linda Sempliner, Secretary; and Joan Sheahan, Treasurer. 
  • The Board agreed to purchase a table for six for Sausalito's Jazz and Blues by the Bay, which is held on Fridays from June through August. This will be available to the entire community. Check back for more details on how to make reservations for this table.
  • The Board is sponsoring an Oral History program, and is actively seeking volunteer interviewers and subjects from the community. Send suggestions to info@floatinghomes.orginfo@floatinghomes.org.
  • A review of FHA committees will be held at the March 20 meeting which will also be an Open Forum meeting.
  • The FHA Bylaws are posted HERE on the FHA web site (top of the page).
