A special meeting to resolve disputes among Northwest Civic Association trustees is set for Wednesday, June 28.
The meeting will begin at 7 p.m., according to a posting by board President John Ehlers on the association’s website, and will be held in the usual meeting space, Room 213 at Meadow Park Church of God, 2425 Bethel Road.
The special session is open to the public, Ehlers said.
Serious personal conflicts among board members came to light at the annual meeting for the civic association June 7, when Ehlers accused Vice President Kyle Hartman of conspiring with others on the board to remove him from the presidency.
The issues to be addressed at the June 28 gathering, according to the website, are:
• Review and confirm the membership of the board of trustees.
• Reconfirm the board’s commitment to inclusivity, transparency and compliance with its governing documents.
• Elect new temporary officers from among current trustees.
• Review, correct if necessary and approve the NWCA membership list.
• Adopt a procedure and timetable for filling vacancies on the board, such as posting a job description for the trustee position, soliciting a statement of interest and resume from all members who want to be trustees, interviewing candidates at times and places to be determined and voting by trustees on all candidates during the board’s regular meeting Aug. 2.
The civic association typically doesn’t meet in July.
“We look forward to resolving these issues, welcoming new trustees and moving the organization forward to meet the challenges facing northwest Columbus in the months and years ahead,” Ehlers wrote.
