BHCA Meetings & Board of Directors


BHCA meetings take place on the first Tuesday of the month, with no meetings in July or August. They’re held at Memorial Episcopal Church at the corner of Bolton and Lafayette Streets in upper Farnham Hall through the red door on Lafayette. Meetings start at 8 p.m. but come as early as 7:30 p.m. to socialize with neighbors and partake in refreshments provided by a volunteer or two. Check the BHCA calendar in case a meeting is rescheduled.

All are welcome to attend BHCA meetings. They are an opportunity for neighbors to gather; to learn about what’s happening around the neighborhood and greater Baltimore; to hear from public officials; and, for Board Members, to vote on matters affecting the neighborhood.

The BHCA Board of Directors consists of seven Officers and 30 Directors elected by the BHCA membership at the annual meeting in May. The Directors may also include representatives of up to three institutional or corporate members of BHCA.

Serving on the BHCA Board of Directors

Directors serve an initial term of three years. After three years, Directors are eligible for an additional term of three years. After two terms, they are not eligible for re-election for one year. Officers are elected for a term of one year. Officers are eligible for re-election for only one succeeding term, with the exception of the Treasurer and General Counsel, which do not have term limits.

BHCA strives for its Board Members to be representative of the neighborhood. Anyone who is a current dues-paying member of BHCA and lives within the neighborhood or represents an institution in the neighborhood is eligible to be a member of the board. The BHCA nominating committee presents a slate of ten new Directors and Officers at the April monthly meeting, who are then elected at the annual meeting in May by majority vote of the BHCA members present. Nominations from the floor are welcome. Board vacancies may be filled throughout the year. To recommend Bolton Hill residents for the nominating committee’s consideration to serve on the Board or for more information, contact the current nominating committee chair at
