How We Do Our Work On Your Behalf:
Who is on the North Stamford Association Board? Fifteen volunteer residents of 06903 work collaboratively almost daily to research, respond and propose corrective actions to the issues brought forth by our members. Once a month, the Board meets to review the month’s activities and plan for the month ahead. North Stamford Association Board members are recruited through a public canvassing of our membership, requesting letters of interest from those who wish to serve. A Nominating Committee of Board members and volunteers from the membership at large, interviews prospective candidates, and makes recommendations to the full Board for approval.
How does the North Stamford Association organize its work? We organize our work by Committee. Seven committees; Administration, Environment, Forum, Land Use, Membership, Newsletter, and Website, are staffed by three to five board members with one designated as the Chair. These committees meet off-line to conduct their business and address issues raised by members that are specific to their committee. Board members usually work on multiple committees each.
What happens behind the scenes? The primary conduit for new and recurring issues is the North Stamford Association information line at 203-329-2498 and the firstname.lastname@example.org email address. Messages left on the phone number are saved and forwarded to the North Stamford Association president and sent to the appropriate committee where responses and plans of action are developed. The same flow takes place with email inquiries. This is a daily occurrence with many inquiries arriving each day. Since the North Stamford Association Board is comprised of volunteers, most with full time employment, we do our best to respond to the messages in a timely fashion. The fifteen board members then work together via telephone and email to address the issue. Often we can resolve an issue or respond to a question directly. Sometimes, issues are more challenging and require legal or regulatory intervention to accomplish the desired outcome.
What can you do? As members, we appreciate your membership support for the work we do on your behalf. As issues arise that concern you, we encourage you to: 1) Call the Citizens Service Center at 203-977-4140. This is not a dead end phone call. You are creating a timestamped trail of your concern, 2) Email us at email@example.com and or leave us a voice message at 203-329-2498. We also ask you to join, renew and even encourage your neighbors to join the North Stamford Association. There is great strength in numbers and we need every 06903 household united in one voice.
