The Manhattan Beach Neighborhood Association will hold its monthly meeting tonight, at 8 p.m., at P.S. 195 (131 Irwin Street).

The group will feature Cathy Brown as a guest speaker. Brown is a vice president at UBS Financal, and will discuss investment strategies for 2013. Refreshments will be served.

The meeting announcement did not say whether the group would discuss the “peace offering” by the rival Manhattan Beach Community Group, which at its last meeting changed its bylaws in order to expedite reunification with the MBNA and allow their directors to come into the older group, MBCG, as directors.

The Manhattan Beach Community Group met earlier this month for their 72nd annual general membership meeting, an end-of-year celebration where new officers are installed and the year’s accomplishments celebrated. This year’s event carried extra weight as the group’s president, Ira Zalcman, said goodbye after seven years of leadership, and the group passed an amendment to its bylaws intended to create peace with its rival neighborhood group.

The December 4 event – which we must note with regret has taken far too long to find its way to our website – drew nearly 200 neighbors, as well as a broad swath of incoming and outgoing elected officials.

Most significantly, the group passed an amendment to its bylaws that they hope will end a bitter six-year feud with the Manhattan Beach Neighborhood Association, a rivalry that many say has divided the community, and diminished its power to effect positive changes in the area.

The new bylaws create an exception for members of the “other group” to rejoin the MBCG as directors without having to wait the requisite two years. Passed with only one objection, by MBNA member Ed Eisenberg, the motion provisions for the group’s president to appoint as many as four members of the MBNA to the MBCG’s board, so long as the MBNA agrees to dissolve.
