Join the JRNA board!
JRNA’s Board is elected at the annual meeting (April 28, 2022 at 6p at Benvenutos). We want to put together a slate of nominees by April 5, 2022 although we will accept nominations up to and even at the meeting.
There are many reasons you might want to join:
Support something you believe in
Make an impact on the Junction Ridge neighborhood
Share your skills
Expand your network
Be part of a team
The board makes sure we achieve that purpose by:
Ensuring sufficient resources
Planning events and activities
Overseeing financial and reporting requirements
Promoting JRNA to the community to build membership, volunteerism, and participation
Any JRNA member in good standing may run for the board. In order to diversify board membership, we encourage young people, people of color, parents of young children and teens, apartment dwellers, and condo owners to run.
You can nominate yourself or another good candidate by using this form:
If being a board member isn't your thing, there are many other ways to get involved!
