Thank you for your interest in serving on the Voices Neighborhood Council board! Here are some things you should know about how to become a board member.
In order to be eligible for the board you must be a stakeholder within the Voices service area. Neighborhood Council membership is open to all Stakeholders. “Stakeholders” shall be defined as those who live, work or own real property in the neighborhood and also to those who declare a stake in the neighborhood as a community interest stakeholder, defined as a person who affirms a substantial and ongoing participation within the Neighborhood Council’s boundaries and who may be in a community organization such as, but not limited to, educational, non-profit and/or religious organizations.
Serving on the board is a significant time commitment that is not to be taken lightly. In addition to monthly meetings for the general board, members are also asked to serve on at least one of our committees, which also meet monthly. Board members are also required to take ethics and funding training, which are available either online or through a city-sponsored workshop. These tasks are the minimum commitment required to be on the board. Throughout the year, members are also asked to dedicate their time to visiting with the community and engaging stakeholders through a variety of venues, including other neighborhood council business, community events, and our own events.
A letter of intent from the applicant for specific open position on the board. The letter should describe the value you would add to the community as a member of the governing board, indicating a willingness to serve their designated term, and accepting responsibilities of the office.
Applications should be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or presented in-person at our monthly meeting.
Please review our bylaws for descriptions of the positions and their responsibilities.
Thank you again for your interest in serving on the board. We appreciate your dedication to our community.
The Voices Neighborhood Council is made up of individuals from our community who
are interested in improving and maintaining the quality of life of the stakeholders of Voices.
Make a choice. Share your VOICE.
