Thank you everyone for attending our Annual General Meeting that was held on November 6th! We had 53 members and families attend which was a fantastic turnout.Meeting was focused on the formal agenda and elections of the Board of Directors. Our membership voted in:
Christina Matisons - President,

Elise Rowland- Director of Community Playgrounds,
Ryan Munday - Director at Large,
Ken Schultz - Director at Large
and retaining current positions - Walter Janzen - Treasurer, Allison Adair - Director at Large, Denise Dodds - Director at Large
We also farewelled Douglas Ratke who has made an outstanding contribution to RCA over his years on the Board and as an avid volunteer.
Our next meeting, in Feb 2019, will be focused on community updates and we will have an open forum discussion about community issues. Ward 12 and City of Calgary representatives will be in attendance.
Riverbend Community Association is very excited about the new leadership and a new vison for the future:
renewed focus on our mission and vision
new board structure defined by results and not by traditional roles that have no alignment to our vision
engaging volunteers with community events and activities
take a different approach to the budget and better plan for repairs and upgrades of the building to ensure that it remains a central hub of our community
continue to introduce technology to streamline and automate processes to cut down on expenses
Build community engagement to understand issues that matter to our residents
We are in a very difficult spot financially. We will need the community to rise up and support the RCA with volunteering, gifts of service, trades etc. There's a great deal of work ahead, but also a new hope for the better future.
