Introduction of Directors and Committee Chairs:
President Reynolds announced that Board members Jim Eddy, Nick Friesen and Mike Myers are stepping down having completed their terms; and that Board members Zareh Amirian and Bea Wojtyla had resigned/retired their posts mid-term for personal reasons. Thus there are vacancies on the Board and new Board members will be elected during this meeting.

The Treasurer’s report was presented by Treasurer Richard Lee, seconded and approved, and it is attached. The current paid membership stands at 205, and total cash as of January 1, 2013 is $17,494.84.

Armine Perian was elected to complete a one year term left vacant.
This leaves vacant a one year term on the Board of Directors. Those interested to serve were asked to contact John Wolff. The Nominating Committee Report was presented, seconded and approved, and it is attached.
RCPOA President Leanne Reynolds reported that there are 680 homes in the area. Also she described the successful RCPOA activities that had taken place throughout the year and thanked those who participated. Future activities include establishing a Pedestrian Safety and Traffic Committee, celebrating local neighborhoods by participating in the National Night Out Events. In addition, she urged residents to register on the private social networking site, Nextdoor.com, as a way to get to know neighbors and, more importantly, be used to send out safety alerts relevant for our community. She noted an information page about this site was available at the check-in table.
The passing of long time members and neighbors, Doris Boyer and Merle Hollywood, was shared and condolences expressed to the families by the RCPOA President.

She invited those who were not members to complete the applications which were placed on the table at the entrance.
