We hope you will join us for our annual election and consider running for one of our open Board positions on May 11th, 7 p.m. at SE Uplift (3534 SE Main Street). No experience is required, and our fun and friendly Board will help you figure things out as you learn on the job. It’s a great way to get involved in your community and amplify our voice to other community groups, and local governments.
Anyone who lives in the Sunnyside neighborhood (our boundaries are 28th, 49th, Hawthorne and Stark) is eligible to run. This year we are looking to fill one- and two- year terms. Meetings are on the second Thursday of each month. Commitments vary depending on your interests and passions.
Serving on the neighborhood association board can be rewarding and very educational. You will be among the first to know when things are changing in the neighborhood and get to meet and work with all kinds of other committed neighbors and community advocates. If you would like to send in a brief candidate’s statement to post to our website and be made available at the election, please email us at [email protected].
