ICCA Elections

An E-mail from Patricia Schubert late last night announced the results of the election for the 2008 ICCA Executive Board, held at yesterday's monthly meeting.

The new officers are:

President

Leslie Zupan

1st Vice President

Hunter McIntosh

2nd Vice President

Dan Johnson

Secretary

Collin Lee

Treasurer

Charlotte Landis

In her message Ms. Schubert, who is stepping down in January after two terms as ICCA President, congratulated the new officers and warmly thanked everyone from the outgoing ICCA Board to City staff for their kindness, assistance and support over the years. At the meeting, she was surprised with a round of applause, a lovely bouquet of flowers and a certificate indicating a tree will be planted in her honor at Hunter-Miller Park.

Discussions at the November ICCA meeting focused on the upcoming Madison project as well as new trash cans and improvements in lighting that are being provided by the City with funds secured several months ago by Ms. Schubert and Council Member Rob Krupicka.

Some delicious refreshments for the meeting were provided by our neighbor Keith Calhoun, who has launched a second career as a personal chef. Mr. Calhoun is Treasurer of the Queen Street Area Business Association (QSABA).

Although the ICCA normally does not meet in December, members voted to meet on the 12th to discuss the Braddock Road Metro small area plan and bus rapid transit (BRT). The group also approved plans to move ahead with a Web site.
