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 board member shall serve a 3-year term. You must be a current or Lifetime dues paying member of the CTA to be eligible. You are encouraged to attend at least one CTA meeting prior to submitting your application.
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. One ballot per household should be returned to the CTA office at PO Box 4306, Louisville, KY 40204 or will also be received at the annual meeting where the counting of the ballots will take place. Votes submitted by FAX are not be valid. The annual meeting will be held at the Highlands – Shelby Park Branch Library at the Mid City Mall at the regular May CTA meeting starting at 7:00 p.m. Newly elected Board members are expected to attend the next 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 at all possible. Should a Trustee need to miss a meeting, notification to the secretary should be made as soon as possible. Three consecutive unexcused absences warrant dismissal from the Board.
Trustees are expected to serve on at least one committee and are encouraged to chair one. Committees include: Alleys, Art Fair, Attorneys Group, 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. Occasionally a Cherokee Triangle resident is willing and able to allow the CTA to host a cocktail party in their home. Trustees are expected to participate in these events.
