Dear Falls Church Leaguers,
The terms of office for several of our board members and for me ends on June 30. Board members Renee Andrews, Madalyn Cafruny, Grace Rissetto, Pam Spofford, and Sandy Tarpinian are leaving the board; however, their expertise is still available, as all have agreed to continue to help as needed. Thanks to these departing board members and the continuing board members for their contributions last year.
We welcome new board members Jody Acosta, Johannah Barry, Marty Maher, and Kathleen Thompson.
It was an honor to serve as your president for the past year. Nothing makes me prouder than to hear compliments about the League's work, which I know is the result of the tremendous group effort of many people. Let's keep it up!
In the coming year, our new leadership team will guide us in the work of registering voters and compiling information and voter service guides, convening community forums on pressing issues, and advocating for better public policies.
At our Annual Meeting, I announced that we are forming a committee to review our policies on Zoning, Land Use, Planning, and Business Development. With the rate of development taking place in Falls Church, we want to be sure that our policies reflect the current reality. If you are interested in being part of this important work, please contact me right away. The effort promises to be another example of the what the League does best.
Each of you who didn't attend the Annual Meeting will receive a copy of the booklet. It contains reports from all committees and is a great record of what we accomplished last year. A
is included with the booklet. Please fill it out and return it to:

Again, thanks to all of you for your support during my year as president.
