CHA Newsletter March 2014

Our 2014 Membership drive begins!

With the release of our Spring newsletter, we also begin our annual membership drive. Dues are our sole source of funds to pay for all of our activities, community meetings, social events, web site, special projects, newsletters and other mailings.

Why become a CHA member? Here are some of the benefits:

  •       Members’ Cocktail Party May 8: Save the date of Thursday, May 8, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. for our annual members’ cocktail party which will be held at a unique and special Chestnut Hill property. This event is limited to those members whose current year’s dues have been received by the CHA. A special invitation will be mailed in April with the details. Please respond with your dues now to ensure that you receive the invitation. (Last year’s party was a big success.)
  •       Voting Privileges:Dues-paying members are entitled to vote to elect officers and board members at our Annual Meeting.
  •       Other CHA Events: Members are invited to special events or informative meetings geared to the interests and needs of our neighborhood.
  •       Participation: We are always looking for members to serve on our various committees, and help carry out our mission. Let us know if you’d like to help.
