October 24, 2023 Meeting Agenda

Our Agenda for the October 24 meeting is below.  But before you get to that, I want to let you know that I have decided to run for the newly opened judicial seat in our new 20th subcircuit (a district for electing judges). This unfortunately means that I will have to step down from the ELVN Board, as our Bylaws wisely prohibit a candidate for elected office from being on the Board.  I love our organization, and this was a difficult factor for me in making this decision.

I will continue to be present with the ELVN organization and at the ELVN meetings, and I certainly will help in the transition.  As you know, ELVN has tremendous leaders on its Board and I know the transition will be seamless.

Thank you all for your friendship and for your outstanding work with ELVN and in our community. I look forward to continuing to see you and keeping our community vibrant and engaged!

All the Best,

Michael Zink

The next ELVN meeting will be IN PERSON at GoodTimes Brewery at 3827 N. Broadway on October 24, 2023 at 6:00 p.m. Below is the agenda. I look forward to seeing you then!
