We signed the constitution!! A historical day for Awake!
Pola was voted president (she’s the boss)
Efthymia Alfa - vice president (she’ll assist and help the president)
Lara Alfa- treasurer (the money person)
Maria Costi – secretary (writes the diary: “dear diary….”)
Things that were said on Thursday 20-11-08:
-from the moment we become an NGO we’ll have to be serious on keeping the books updated, and the expenses written down etc.
-The committee will be meeting more often now, and will discuss different issues and how to proceed. They’ll meet with the people in the municipality etc, and only if it is necessary will there be held a meeting, i.e. if we all have to vote or decide on something.
-It was commented that these four-five people will have a lot more weight on their shoulders and a lot more work to do, but we could also vote for a new committee every year or earlier if one of the members can’t continue.
-we agreed that AWAKE won’t fight specific neighborhood issues but general problems that are the same for many neighborhoods i.e. noise, clubs, cars, traffic, parking, and garbage etc. Those who have specific problems will first try to address them personally, and in case of difficulties will bring the subject up in AWAKE’s meetings to see what can be done.
-A possible event right after Christmas?
Hope all’s clear.
See you soon
