Thursday, September 15th is the HPCC annual meeting at 7pm at St Andrews Church, where each year the HPCC Board provides updates to the community on all of the organization’s major projects and Officers and Board Members are elected for the coming year. This year, in addition to electing Officers and Members of the Board, we’ll also be holding a vote on a series of amendments to our bylaws that are intended to improve the way our organization does business and update the rules and procedures we follow to best serve the neighborhood.

The HPCC Bylaws are the basic rules that define how the HPCC is organized and how decisions are made. Like the US Constitution or the Pittsburgh Home Rule Charter, the Bylaws establish the roles and responsibilities of the members and leaders of our organization, describe how and when meetings should be held, outline how our budget should be set and managed, and set out other important guidelines for how the HPCC operates.

The proposed Bylaws amendment would move our fiscal year from a September-August cycle to a July-June cycle to eliminate current issues with budgeting for Reservoir of Jazz, move the date of our Annual Meeting to June to align with our busy season for events, restructure the rules governing how our meetings are held to reinforce our current best practices, and making a few other technical, clarifying, or editorial changes.

The text of the proposed Bylaws amendment is available by clicking here. Changes affecting membership appear in blue, meetings in purple, finances in green, committees in orange. Clarifying edits are in pink, and typo corrections are in red.

Prior to the vote on this amendment, we’ll be holding a discussion on what the changes mean and why they are being proposed, so please make sure to come to the annual meeting to participate in the discussion and make your voice heard!

Please join us for the HPCC August Monthly Meeting – Thursday, August 18th at 7:00 p.m. at St. Andrew’s Church. All Highland Parkers are encouraged to attend.

Commander Lando will begin the meeting with an update on the shooting on Bryant Street and will take any questions you may have.

We also have a great line-up of speakers for the evening:

Jessica Bowser Acrie will give a tutorial on using LinkedIn: Building Your Best Online Professional Presence.

Erin Potts, Pittsburgh Bike Share Director of Marketing & Community Outreach Healthy Ride Expansion Planning will also be on hand to discuss the Healthy Ride Expansion Planning currently underway.

The September meeting focuses on HPCC board elections. If you like what we do in the neighborhood and want to become more involved, please come to the August meeting on Thursday or reach out to myself or another board member. Every year three board members rotate off the board and three more are elected so we are always looking for neighbors who want to get involved.

This summer you can once again relax on the lawn at Highland Park to the sounds of jazz performed by Pittsburgh’s finest musicians. Residents of the tri-state area look forward to this showcase of the area’s extraordinary jazz talent at the ever-popular Reservoir of Jazz series.
