Cherokee Triangle Association Board of Trustees Election Process

Six trustee seats are elected to the Board of the Cherokee Triangle Association (CTA) each year.  Each trustee shall serve a 3-year term and can serve two terms.  Current or Lifetime dues paying members of the CTA are eligible.  Members are encouraged to attend at least one Board meeting prior to submitting an application.  Get application form here:     Trustee Application Form 2018 PDF

If there are more applications than open seats, applicants will be listed on a ballot that will be mailed to each dues-paying association member household.  The ballot will have instructions on how to return it.  Ballots will be counted at the May CTA meeting.  Newly-elected trustees are expected to attend the June meeting and will take their seats at the August meeting.

Basic Board Responsibilities

Board meetings are held at the library in the Mid City Mall at 7:00 p.m. on the third Monday of each month except July and December.  Trustees are encouraged to attend all meetings.  If a trustee needs to miss a meeting, the trustee should notify the Board secretary as soon as possible.  Three consecutive unexcused absences warrant dismissal from the Board.

Trustees are expected to serve on various committees and are encouraged to chair one.  Committees include:  Alleys, Art Fair, By-laws and Resolutions, Concerts, External Affairs (city & county liaison, other neighborhood associations, police, utilities, public relations), Financial Affairs, Neighborhood Preservation & Development, Newsletter, and Nominating.

Our main fundraiser is the annual Cherokee Triangle Art Fair, which is always held the weekend before Derby.  The CTA sponsors numerous neighborhood activities including the summer Willow Park Concert Series, the annual Membership Party (in a member’s home), the fall Family Festival and   winter potluck dinner.  Trustees are expected to participate in these events.
