The Main Street Hardy organization will be restructuring their board to better meet the needs of residents and to further improve upon the city of Hardy's historic district.
Main Street Hardy President Donna Cruse said in their Jan. 27 letter to the Hardy City Council, the organization communicated their intent to begin working on a adding new board members by March 1. Due to the large amount of inclement weather and illness, Cruse said the goal was not reached.
The Main Street Hardy Board met Feb. 11 and addressed the situation. They are currently providing resume forms for board members. The forms can be sent by E mail to anyone requesting them at firstname.lastname@example.org. The board would also like to have them available at Hardy City Hall. Cruse said those interested in serving on the board should be committed to attend all meetings, to volunteer their time during events and fundraisers.
She said anyone interested should mail their completed resume to Main Street Hardy, P.O. Box 668, Hardy, AR 72542.
She said the resumes will be evaluated both by the current board and the board at Little Rock will also review the applications.
Cruse said, "To ensure a successful transition of the addition of new board members and the continued success of the program, the current board will continue to serve until five new members are added. At that time, Rhonda Messer and myself will remain on the board."
Cruse said by submitting resumes, the background, areas of expertise and interest in the organization can be best outlined for consideration for the board.
Current members include, Kim Wilson, Executive director, Donna Cruse, president, Joyce Ramsdale, Joella Vanhouten, Dale Maddox, Suzanne Frye and Rhonda Messer.
Resumes should be submitted by March 31 for consideration for a place on the Main Street Hardy Board.
