Sign Up for the Glendale Zoom AGM!
Glendale is entering an exciting new chapter in 2021 and we are looking for new members to join our community association board to help lead us forward. You have that opportunity at the 2021 Annual General Meeting on Wednesday, September 8 at 7 p.m. virtually on Zoom.
The meeting will feature a recap of the year’s events in the community and preschool, presentation of last year’s financials and a budget for the coming year and the election of the new board that will serve for 2021-2022.
While 2021 started with a damaging sewer flood, (we won’t even mention the impact Covid-19 has had on every one of us) the board saw the disaster as an opportunity to revitalize the community hall. Structural changes have been made to prevent future sewer backups and the Glendale Community Preschool has a brand new space that is perfect for our little ones. School is set to open in September. Main hall renovations are also well underway, but there is still much work to do, including an engineering study of the building’s heating and cooling system, while we continue to pursue the funding that will complete the project. We are optimistic that the space will reopen this fall.
The renovation brings the opportunity for new programming that can take advantage of this revitalized space that will be a Glendale hub for decades to come. Glendale is seeing so many new young families moving in and it would be wonderful to make sure their voices are heard around the table.
Community board volunteers are the people who help set the direction for those activities. We oversee budgets and the business plan, review bylaws, organize social events, coordinate rink flooding, the community garden and tennis memberships as well as overseeing care of the community centre park — winter and summer. Board members participate in city-wide development initiatives and offer comment to the City of Calgary on local development applications. The board also oversees operations at the Glendale Community Preschool.
