2017 Governance Committee

The Governance Committee and the Board of Directors of the Rye Civic League met on August 29, 2017 to, among other topics, review the composition of the Board of Directors and the Officers and their effectiveness in meeting the goals of the Rye Civic League.  All of the existing Directors were willing to continue to serve as Directors, and those who are Officers were willing to continue to serve in their existing roles.  An expansion of the Board of Directors to seven members was deemed desirable, but members who were approached respectively declined at this time.   The board could benefit from more diversity.
The Governance Committee intends to nominate the following slate of individuals to serve as Directors of the Rye Civic League at its annual meeting on November 8, 2017.  Other nominations may be made by any member from the floor.
Steven Borne
Peter Crawford
