State of Texas legislative update was given by Jeff Peterson, constituent representative for State Rep Menedez.

Open Forum:

A guest speaker was not scheduled for this meeting so the membership could discuss topics of interest to them.  Two topics that generated lots of interest were: (1) future speakers; and (2) how to generate new membership in the HNA.

A list has been compiled for future speakers.  Bexar Met will be ask to speak at the Oct 18th meeting because of the upcoming election that will allow Bexar Met rate payers choose between Bexar Met and Saws to be their water supplier.

A short term idea for generating HNA membership is to offer an October special of $10.00 for a one year membership for Heritage residents that have not been a HNA member for the past five years. 
This special would be announced at the Oct 4th NNO event, Oct 18th HNA meeting and the Oct 22ned community yard sale.  The special would be valid until Oct 31st, 2011.  The present membership understands and agrees this special would not apply to them.

Another idea proposed and agreed upon will be to wait until spring and approach those homeowners or renters who obviously take care of their property and invite them to become members at the $10.00 membership rate.

Meeting Adjourned. 

As is the practice at all meetings, the membership and new comers had the opportunity to
have a one on one conversation with the guests and board members; socialize; and join the HNA or renew their membership.
