RCBA board of directors,

We have had a shift in the makeup of our officers and board. Paul Ainsworth (4E7) returns as President, and is no longer interim. Diane Farber (18E5), formerly on the Board of Directors, is now our Vice President. We welcome back Steph Ainsworth Maass (20E8) as Secretary, and Linda Pellegrino (3W10) is steady at the helm as our Treasurer once again.
We have some familiar faces on our Board of Directors, as MJ Kanaczet (14E3), Samantha Grayeck Winkler (20E14), Shannon Conti (3E18), and Sherry Rodgerson (14E1) continue to volunteer their time. They are now joined by former Secretary Alayna Berek (3E17), who we are thrilled to keep among our ranks.
If you see us out and about, be sure to say hi!
At the August 29th meeting, a motion was made to “withdraw the RCBA recommendation that MBP not amend the lease regarding the open flame rule”. This motion was seconded, voted on, and approved by 58% of those present, thus carries. The Officers and Board will follow up with MBP to withdraw the previous recommendation in accordance with that vote.
This does not mean that RCBA will endorse the use of firepits, nor does it mean that MBP will choose on their own to remove Statement #10 of Exhibit A Rules and Regulations concerning fires, fire pits, and open flames. It only means that we will no longer ask that they keep this rule in the lease. Members who wish to express their feelings for or against allowing the use of fire pits should discuss the matter directly with MBP.
