Coram Civic Association
The following are the Coram Civic Association Officer and Director positions that will beon the ballot this year for the November 2021 elections:
Your Coram Civic Association Board of Directors consists of nine individuals from the Coram community who are elected volunteers. These nine directors consist of seven corporate officers and two non-officers. Your Board of Directors is responsible for planning the objectives, goals, and strategies for your Coram Civic based on the expressed needs and desires of our membership. All decisions are made on a majority basis through consensus by your Board with each Director having one equal vote.
Currently, the Board of Directors meets the second Wednesday evening of each month, and our General Membership Meetings are held on the fourth Monday of each month. Duties of all positions can be found on our website under Bylaws…or just contact any one of the Board Members via phone or email or at one of our monthly meetings for more info.
Become a decision maker for your community! Let us hear your vision for your community. Influence plans for Coram before the decisions are made! Become part of the solution by serving your fellow Coram residents as a member of the Coram Civic Board of Directors!
In order to maintain a vibrant, proactive civic as well as an organization reflective of our always-evolving community culture and generational shifting, the seven corporate Officer positions serve a two-year term, and the two non-officer Director positions serve a one-year term. Therefore, normally, the procedure is to have four of the Officer positions voted on during even years along with the two annual non-officer Director positions, followed by the remaining three Officer positions and two annual non-officer Director positions during the odd years. Because of the pandemic last year, we were unable to hold our normal elections in 2020, so this year we will be holding elections for all nine positions with the Officer positions that expired in 2020 (but were held over into 2021) having only a one-year term for this election. This procedure allows us to get back on the odd/even officer election schedule in 2022 and provides for all members of our Coram Community Civic to have the opportunity to run for a leadership role for the Coram Civic…and new ideas, new energies, and new approaches are always welcome and needed for the overall health of your organization and your Coram Community! Being a Board Director involves a time investment anywhere from 2 hours per month up to whatever you are able to do, so if you want to help guide your Coram community, explore this opportunity!

McDonald’s of Coram is located right on Middle Country Road, next to the old Coram Fire Department building and right across from the Coram Plaza Shopping Center, home to anchor stores Stop & Shop and Home Depot. Hunt Enterprises, owner and operator of this location along with 26 other McDonald’s on Long Island, renovated their building a few years ago and did an outstanding job with the design, traffic flow, and landscaping. They installed “gas light-type” fixtures along Middle Country Road in front of their location adding a wonderful ‘old world’ charm to their location. And most importantly, they continue to maintain the area as evidenced by the pictures above. This type of professionalism and concern for the residents of Coram as well as their fellow businesses along this main shopping area on Middle Country Road between Route 112 and Coram-Mt. Sinai Road, definitely qualifies them for a “Great Neighbor!” shoutout! In future editions of the Community Update, your Coram Civic will be highlighting more of those businesses that are going above and beyond to bring a high-quality shopping experience to our self-designated “Downtown Shopping Area” and the residents of Coram as well as all the residents of the greater Longwood Community!
Your Coram Civic Association is proud to announce the Community Service Scholarship Award winner for 2021!
