DSBA Attends CEC

From Elaine Weinstein:

As a representative of the Dean Street Association I attended the July 2016 meeting of  Community Education Council 13. The main effort of the Committee that evening was to interview a  potential replacement for an opening on the Committee. Additionally, the CEC reviewed the treasurer’s report and discussed project teams going forward.
I introduced myself as a representative of our group and asked whether the council had produced any reports that could be important to our block association. They said there were no reports issued but that if there were they would be posted on their website  cec13.org. I plan to attend the next meeting scheduled for August 9th.

Going forward our goal is to encourage further transparency so that the community is informed of their process and decision making authority.

If anyone is interested in joining me feel free to email me.
