Members of the Public Welcome

Members of the public are invited to attend the May 5 meeting of the Board of Directors of San Francisco’s LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired. This meeting will be held at LightHouse Sirkin Center in Alameda and thirty minutes will be reserved for public comment. In an effort to provide a fair and equitable speaking opportunity for all members of the public, up to three minutes will be provided for each person’s questions or comments.

At this meeting, the Board welcomes Board nominations, questions, and comments from the public on the operations and services of the LightHouse. As time is limited, members of the public are asked to sign up to speak no later than noon the day before the meeting by email.  Contact information for the LightHouse is provided at the end of this notice.

Members of the public who want to speak are encouraged to sign up early, as the 30-minute public comment session can accommodate no more than 10 speakers.

Board Member Nominations

Members of the public can bring potential Board candidates to the attention of the Board’s Nominations committee. To do this, please send an email of no more than 500 words describing why the prospective Board candidate should be considered. Members of the public may use their three minutes of speaking time to speak about a Board candidate, but in order for a Board candidate to be considered, members of the public will still need to email the Board prior to the meeting. The Board will review and evaluate each potential Board candidate in addition to those made by the LightHouse staff and other members of the Board.

Board of Directors Meeting Agenda

A typical LightHouse Board meeting usually includes Executive and staff reports, Board Committee reports, and an Executive Session (which is closed to the public). A meeting agenda can be obtained upon request by email three business days prior to the meeting.
