Concordia Neighborhood Association (CNA) will hold its Annual Elections for Board members on Tuesday November 18, 2014 at 7pm at The Kennedy School Community Room.
Now is the time to think about becoming a member of the Board. Do you have a couple of hours a month to serve your community? Do you like being involved on the “ground floor?” Are you willing to represent your community and work for the good of the community? If you can answer yes to these questions, why not think about serving for two years on the Board of the Concordia Neighborhood Association?
The following positions will be open for election in November:
Geographic Positions (these are seats on the board based on your street address)
- EAST – (NE Columbia BLVD on the North to NE Alberta Court on the South and NE 42nd Ave to the east to NE 33rd on the west.)
- SOUTHWEST – (NE Killingsworth on the North to NE Prescott on the South and NE 33rd Ave on the east to NE 22nd Ave on the West)
At Large Positions (Up to three seats available. These seats are not connected to any address.)
The Chair of the Association
These are all two year terms, except for the Chair, which is a one year term. Terms begin for all on January 1st following the November election and end on December 31st two or one (Chair) year(s) hence. Board members must attend one monthly Board meeting and 4-6 general membership meetings per year. In addition, they are expected to participate in CNA-sponsored events as well as serve on at least one working committee of their choice.
In order to be a member of the Concordia Neighborhood Association and, thus, be eligible to run for a Board position, you must be a resident, property owner or business licensee, 14 years of age or older, or be a representative from a governmental agency, educational institution or nonprofit organization located within the boundaries of the Concordia Neighborhood (concordia_map).
