Approved Minutes of Board Meetings
O'Hara Mill Homestead and Conservation Area is managed by the O'Hara Volunteers Association. The Association is made up of people who volunteer to be members. In turn they elect, a Management Board from the membership who have volunteered to stand for election.
In an effort to offer more information about planning and management, the management board will be posting copies of Approved Minutes of Board Meetings beginning with those for 2014. It may be helpful to understand the intended purpose of Minutes and what they are not meant for. Minutes are required to capture an overview of items that are raised, discussed and provide a record of decisions that are made. What they are not intended to provide is a full detailed record of discussion or detail records of reports or communications.
The Association encourages interested individuals, to volunteer for membership. Doing so provides them with a voice and essential input into the management process at Annual General Meetings. Members with a desire to become more involved in management are encouraged to stand for election to the board.
