                    Albemarle Neighborhood Association Meeting
                 Thursday, November 17th, 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Barry Spitzer, District Manager of Community Board 12, will be the guest speaker at the November 17th meeting of the Albemarle Neighborhood Association (ANA).

The community board hired Mr. Spitzer for the position in March 2014, replacing Wolf Sender. Mr. Spitzer is the first Hasidic Jewish district manager in New York City.

The mission of the community board is to advise elected officials and government agencies on matters affecting the social welfare of the district. Residents tell the board what the community's needs are, and the board attempts to get these needs met.

The role of the district manager, according to page 51 of 2010 Handbook for Community Board Members, is to

     (1) process service complaints;
     (2) preside at meetings of the District Service Cabinet; and
     (3) perform such other duties as may be assigned by the Community Board.

Community Board 12 meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month, except during July and August. All meetings are open to the public and are held at Amico Senior Center, 5901 13th Avenue, at the corner of 59th Street, in Borough Park.

As always, after the ANA meeting, refreshments provided by Foodtown and ANA will be served.

Members of ANA as well as non-members are welcome to attend all ANA community meetings. Admission is free.
