NAMI MEMBERSHIP MEETING, OCTOBER 27, 2012

Dear NAMI Metropolitan Houston Members,

 

This letter is to notify you of a general membership meeting scheduled for October 27, 2012, 10:00 a.m. at the NAMI Metropolitan Houston office, located at 3630 West Dallas Street, Suite 140 (corner of W Dallas and Shepherd).

 

All members are invited to attend and vote at this meeting seeking approval of the proposed merger of NAMI Metropolitan Houston and NAMI West Houston into NAMI Greater Houston effective January 1, 3013. 

 

The Boards of Directors of both NAMI affiliates voted to pursue a merger beginning early in 2012 in order to better serve Houston with NAMI's support, education, and advocacy services together, rather than continue as separate entities.   A joint Merger Exploration Team was formed with representatives from both organizations to jointly work through issues concerning the merger and resolve any legal and operational issues.  The merger team used task groups focusing on the details involved in governance, finance, programs and services, and volunteers/employees/locations to discuss merged operation once the event gained approval.

 

Both Boards of Directors have now approved completion of the merger into NAMI Greater Houston.  There is a new jointly drafted set of bylaws and merger agreement, and a slate of officers and directors nominated by a joint nominating committee.  These will be presented to the members NAMI Metropolitan Houston in the October 27 meeting for approval.

 

An agenda for the meeting will be posted on the NAMI Metropolitan Houston website for information prior to the meeting.  In addition, the documents mentioned above will also be available should you care to view them.

 

Thank you for supporting NAMI with your time, membership, and volunteer hours.  We look forward to seeing you at the meeting.

 

 

Sincerely,

 

Dick Easterwood

The Rose Golf Classic

Date: Cot 28, 2013

Time: 11:00 AM

Location: Shadow Hawk Golf Club

Now here's a stroke of genius ......
A chance to play at one of Houston’s top ten private courses…
Considered one of the five toughest private clubs to access...
Alongside a sports veteran, with plenty of tales to tell... On a crisp October day
And it’s all for a great cause.
Join us for a rare experience combining two passions – love of the game and saving lives – as we host The Rose Golf Classic at the exclusive Shadow Hawk Golf Club in Richmond, Texas. Since Shadow Hawk caps its membership at only 325, this invitation is one not to be missed and guaranteed to produce a memorable experience of fun and philanthropy combined. To continue the high standards of the Rees Jones designed course, only 20 teams will be accepted. Each team of four will be joined by a celebrity athlete to make the 18 holes even more enjoyable. Players will also be guests at an exclusive pre-tournament reception and awards dinner.

Almost 14 years to the day that the Honorable George H. W. Bush, 41st President of the United States, hit a drive straight and true down the middle of the first fairway to commence the first round played at Shadow Hawk Golf Club, guests of The Rose Golf Classic will take to the course on October 28, 2013 to ensure that the women of South Texas have access to quality breast health care. Proceeds from The Rose Golf Classic will go towards expanding The Rose’s mobile fleet. Already in 24 counties, providing state-of-the-art digital screenings, the Mobile Teams are ready take on even more of Texas. A one-of-kind, premiere nonprofit breast health organization, The Rose offers best in class care for both insured and uninsured women. Overcoming barriers to health like economics, geography and convenience translate into saved lives through the preventive care of screenings.

Just as Shadow Hawk’s 240 acres of property winding through old pecan trees and several large lakes in Richmond, Texas, serves as a peaceful refuge, so The Rose is a haven for women who all too often put everyone else’s health before their own. Combining the love of the game with the chance to meet such a need?

Truly a stroke of genius!
