RCPC Board of Directors Election Rescheduled to May

Sunday, May 8, 2011

What would happen if they held an election and nobody came? It’s an old joke, but nobody laughed when it was discovered that for the first time in RCPC’s 25-year history, there was not the necessary quorum — at least 25 members — to make the vote for board of directors valid. Consequently, the election has been rescheduled for the RCPC Town Hall meeting May 19, 7 p.m., at the Rockridge Branch Library.
