POSTPONED: November 18, 2020 Meeting of the Hancock Neighborhood Association

Dear Hancock Neighborhood Association Members

The purpose of this email is to inform everyone that's tonight 's much anticipated HNA regular meeting has been postponed.

Because of the interest in tonight 's meeting and the vote on competing resolutions regarding the future of the Hancock Golf Course, we attempted to put in place a structure that limited attendance at the meeting to just HNA members. To accomplish this, we asked asked that HNA members register with me by Sunday so that we could provide a Zoom link only to HNA members. Unfortunately, many existing members, who
have every right to attend the meeting, only contacted us last night and today , which caused us to exceed the maximum number on the Zoom meeting. As a result, we concerned that some HNA members would not be able to attend the meeting and vote on the resolutions.

In addition, it came to our attention that, at 4:15 this afternoon, the Hancock Conservancy sent out an email calling for anyone interested in attending tonight ’s Hancock Neighborhood Association meeting to call one of its organizers to get a Zoom link to the HNA meeting. As indicated above, we have been going to great lengths to keep tonight 's meeting limited to just HNA members. The Hancock Conservancy’s
solicitation of attendees and request that they vote for its resolution compromises the HNA’s ability to decide alone and without interference which resolution the residents of the HNA want to support. Because the Zoom link to this evening’s meeting is being made public, there is no practical way to ensure that only HNA members vote.

We will keep you advised as to how we might be able to address these problems and when November's regular meeting will be rescheduled. Please stay tuned to Yahoo! groups and the HNA website for information.

HNA NEWS - July 12, 2020

 

HNA NEWS

July 12th, 2020

 

We held out as long as we could in the hope our governmental leadership & citizens would guide us out of covid spreading like wildfire. Since that does not appear realistic the Executive Committee has decided to obtain an HNA Zoom Acct for General Meetings, Committee Mtgs and sub-committees/work-groups. We will assume regular meeting schedule starting in September. No meeting on July 15th but a special call either July 29th or August 5th.

 

HNA Zoom Mtgs will operate as such: (small changes may occur and will be posted/read as technical issues and improved processes are identified)

 

Each meeting will have a designated Zoom Monitor.

1) Anyone is welcome, as always, up to first 100 connections (if you use a computer & phone you take up 2 connections)

2) Executive Committee, Committee Chairs and Presenters will be unmuted during the meeting, all others will be muted by the moderator. (If you don’t understand why this is an absolute necessity - ask anyone who’s been on large zoom calls or google it.)

- anyone who can not eliminate feedback will be muted.

- anyone who can not speak with respect and in a civilized manner will be muted

a) People may raise their hand (zoom term) to speak and the moderator will un-mute them at the appropriate time and in order.

b) Members may raise a question through the chat button and the moderator will ask the question for you.

c) Voting will occur either through a voice roll call or a we hope (preferred) through the chat function, so we can validate voting with membership and record such votes. We plan to tally votes during mtgs and will structure the agenda to allow EC to capture the vote without needlessly stopping or delaying the meeting.

Note: In rare instances (large meetings) final votes may be tallied after the meeting and posted with all votes show

 

DUES: You may not vote on any item if you are not currently a member.
