WCBA NEEDS YOUR ASSISTANCE IN UPDATING ITS BYLAWS!
The last several years have been exciting for our Woodstock business district. We have seen new businesses join our community and additional commercial structures going up to house even more. For over 30 years the Woodstock Community Business Association has been dedicated to making sure that our business district is a thriving part of of the neighborhood. To help define our mission and create good structure, we are governed by Bylaws that every so often need to be adapted to reflect best practices. This is one of those times.
After considerable review and revision by your WCBA Board of Directors, the final version of the proposed Bylaws is posted for downloading and review HERE.
The proposed Bylaws will be voted upon at a "special
meeting of the membership" in conjunction with the next regularly
scheduled WCBA Board Meeting, which will be held on Tuesday morning,
August 9, at 9:30 am, in the meeting room of the Woodstock Branch
Library at SE 49th and Woodstock Boulevard (enter from the rear parking
lot) -- a meeting to which all interested members of the community are

Thanks for joining us at the WCBA Annual Meeting on February 6th!
Once a year the Woodstock Community Business Association throws a dinner party for the Woodstock and Brentwood-Darlington business district -- at its Annual Meeting!
Again this year, it was held at Woodstock Wine and Deli, in the early evening of Saturday, February 6th; and mixed in with the conversation, networking, and report on the activities and achievements of your business association during the past year, there was the annual Board election, and a raffle drawing!
Elected to the Board were Ann Sanderson, Anita Carley, Eric Norberg (all re-elections), Maile Baures, and Marah Anderson -- joining those elected last year, who have a year to go in their staggered terms: Elisa Edgington, Cory Hansen, and Jin Darney. There are still a few open seats on the Board, under the bylaws; and if you would like to join the Board and help direct your business association, just come to any monthly meeting and let us know of your interest. The meetings are always open to all, and if you haven't come to one yet, you really should!
Below are a few snapshots for our Annual Meeting this year -- with a special nod of thanks to Gregg Fujino & staff at Woodstock Wine and Deli for once again hosting our annual meeting and buffet dinner!

Woodstock Gives Back: "A Coordinated Day of Giving"
On Sunday, September 13, 2015, businesses all over Woodstock raised funds and generated awareness for the charity or non-profit of their choice. The 32 participating Woodstock businesses selected a combined total of 30 charities that were important to them, and each supported their charity of choice in their own unique way.
Whether it was a dental office that raised money for the free dental clinic, a restaurant that collected food for the food bank, or a hair salon that cut off ponytails to have wigs made for cancer patients, each participating business offered opportunities to their customers to give from their hearts to causes they cherish.
In addition, there were lots of fun extras to appeal to families and people of all ages!
The WCBA received a matching grant from Venture Portland to help the WCBA make this an amazing neighborhood event. In the end, in aggregate, some $16,000 was raised for the chosen charities -- and in addition, the Red Cross Bloodmobile collected 30 pints of blood (15 from first time donors!); 85 brave bots were made; 100 cards for sick children at St. Jude’s; and one of the puppies found a forever home. There were so many more “wins”, and for weeks people in and outside the neighborhood have said how much they liked and appreciated the day. Thank you, and next year will be even better!
