Community Council Board

Last Update: June 17, 2024

The community council board consists of 12 members when all positions are filled. The community elects 8 members in even years, and the board will appoint 4 more to fill gaps in skills needed and/or sectors to be covered.  We currently have openings for 5 more board members, and are looking for board members who will be willing to work in the following areas:

  • Learning how to run Hybrid meetings (Zoom and In-person)

  • Expertise in Wix websites, or willingness to learn

  • Newsletter design and wording

  • Social media and other publicity – radio, newspaper, posters on bulletin boards

  • Fundraising (events, grants, online donations, other)

  • Serving as the board liaison to one or more committees working on community issues

 

We are also looking to have a board member  be a  liaison to the following sectors:​​

  • Culture (art) and history

  • Education

  • Recreation

  • LGBTQIA2S+

The sectors mentioned with each board member are those areas of special interest to the board member. The board member does not represent these sectors. Rather, the purpose is to have the board member connect with these sectors to understand their issues and needs and encourage participation in the Community Council meetings. This will result in greater visibility and understanding of community issues specific to each sector, and action on those issues.
