Board of Directors Votes to Cease Operations

Board of Directors Votes to Cease Operations

At the most recent BABA Board of Directors meeting, held December 13, 2022, the Board unanimously voted to cease operations effective December 31, 2022. Details regarding this and the next steps are included in the minutes posted at the bottom of the homepage. An email has also been sent to current members in good standing.

Over the last several months, the Board has made many attempts to recruit new board members. While we appreciate the members who stepped up to support individual activities and events, no one came forward to accept full-time board roles. As communicated previously, this is unsustainable.

The current Board began their term in October 2021. Since then, BABA has hosted several successful events, and increased membership to 61. BABA is coming to a close after 10 ½ years having contributed much to the community. The Board thanks all of those who have supported the organization.
