After the Area Council 17 meeting yesterday a few of us who went for refreshments after the meeting were met by Eric Johnson, the Past President of Kilkenny Community League. The energetic and inspiring former president has suffered some health issues and is recovering very well, if his spirits are any indication. I wish him a speedy recovery and thank him for all the great work he has carried out for his community over the years.

EFCL/Area Council MOUlast year a number of Area Council Representatives and EFCL folks got together and discussed developing a short agreement to help define and explain the roles of Area Councils and the EFCL (see attached document). The EFCL asked City Council to fund a positon to help coordinate and support both Area Councils and EFCL districts. The thinking was If these two organizations of community leagues communicated and worked well together, we could all get much more done more effectively and more efficiently. The City chose not to  fund the position. This means we are still left with the draft Memoradum of Agreement, which unto itself is still a good idea. The EFCL is considering how to move this along, as are some of the Area Councils, so this is an opportune time for District B Community Leagues to weigh in.

You guys are the bosses of both Area Councils and the EFCL. Does this proposed agreement sound like a good idea? Do you have any feedback on the MOU? I am asking as your EFCL District Representative. Please tell me how the two organizations can work together to BETTER help you with the business of running community leagues. Please send your feedback on the MOU to me, David Dodge email: president(at)efcl.org

Decision Items from the June 9, 2011 Board Package
Note, the minutes are no longer part of the board package because we should really distribute minutes before they are approved. You can get those from the EFCL website once they are approved.
