May 2018 Neighborhood Elections

The Neighborhood Association will be holding annual elections for its all-volunteer board at our May meeting.

Available positions include Treasurer, Land Use, Communications, and many more — including delegate positions to fit your passion (emergency preparedness, community garden, youth and family, and more!).

There’s no easier way to get to know your neighborhood than by volunteering on a committee or as a board member. (Foster-Powell residents need to attend just three meetings to be eligible to serve on the board.)

Put your ideas to work and pick up a few new skills along the way!

Want to learn more?

Contact us. We’d love to meet you!
