Join or Renew by April 1 to vote in CPN annual meeting

cpn1Cedar Park Neighbors' annual meeting is coming up on Monday, April 21st, at 7pm. It will be held at the Calvary Center at 48th & Baltimore. At our meeting, we'll hear a report of what CPN has done over the past year and vote for next year's officers and board members. (We're also planning a special event at the annual meeting ... stay tuned for more information on that.) But, according to our by-laws, you can't vote at the annual meeting if you are not a CPN member as of April 1.

Annual memberships run from January 1 to December 31 each year. That means that unless you've joined or renewed your CPN membership in 2014, you're probably not a current member. (I say "probably" since some people pay several years in advance.)

So with only 9 days to go before April 1, why not join or renew your membership right now by going to

It's fast. It's secure. It's easy. And annual memberships start at just $7/year (for seniors, students, and the unemployed.)

PS. Remember: our annual scholarship fundraiser will be held two weeks from today on Sunday, April 6. More information at
