Ocean Pines residents will get a chance to weigh in on current projects and community matters at an upcoming town hall meeting on Thursday, Nov. 1 at 7:30 p.m. in the Community Center, located at 235 Ocean Parkway.
“To better answer questions from Members of the Ocean Pines Association, we are hoping that folks will take a moment to send them in advance of the meeting,” said Jennifer Cropper-Rines, chairwoman of the Ocean Pines Communications Advisory Committee. “As the chair of the Ocean Pines Communications Advisory Committee, I’m so pleased to see the Board using this Committee as a conduit for information between the BOD and the Members.”
Residents are encouraged to submit question/s and comment/s to the Ocean Pines Board of Directors and its Communications Advisory Committee in advance via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Director Colette Horn, at the July 27 Regular Board Meeting, introduced a motion to accept the recommendation from the Ocean Pines Communications Advisory Committee to set a policy for the coming year of holding three Town Hall meetings for the purpose of updating and engaging in question and answer and discussion with the Membership on pending Board business and other topics of concern to the Membership.
“I am very pleased that my Board colleagues agreed with me and the Communications Advisory Committee that Town Hall Meetings provide an important and unique opportunity for us to interact directly with OPA members on topics of concern to us all,” said Horn. “The Board hears from many members who provide public comments at our general board meetings and who email or call us directly. However, the Town Hall Meeting is our opportunity for face-to-face discussion with members in a public forum.”
