As per our Bylaws, Sunnyside Neighborhood Association will be holding its biennial elections at our next quarterly meeting, on Monday Feb 5, 2018 (7pm). Any Sunnyside resident who is an active member of SNA is eligible to hold a board position. See below for an excerpt from the Bylaws which define the five board positions.
If you are a Sunnyside resident who is interested in serving on the board, please contact SNA (email@example.com) or simply come to the Feb 5 meeting. As per the Bylaws, nominations and voting take place in person without provision for proxies or paper ballots.
We also always welcome any member’s participation in any area you’d like to work on that benefits our community. We have several open project aims, such as artwork for the lower Detroit Steps, or a mini-park for the sewer lots between Mangels and Joost – but these projects languish without volunteer leadership. Please contact the board if you would like to chair a committee or volunteer: firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, all local residents are invited to be part of the ongoing Balboa Reservoir community input process (more here).
