That’s right, it’s election season even in North Tabor. We have been filling chairs throughout the year, but we still have to be voted in by our neighbors to keep our seats. North Tabor Neighborhood Association Board Elections will take place during our monthly meeting – Tuesday, October 21, 2014, at 5600 NE Glisan.
The North Tabor neighborhood is as unique as the people that live here. What is your vision for the future of this place we call home? The North Tabor Neighborhood Association (NTNA) is actively recruiting for elected board member positions to help move our work forward. Take a peek at the opportunities available. Your time, talent and ideas can be utilized in an area that most interests you. In return, you’ll meet new people, gain skills and knowledge, and see North Tabor in a whole new light! All elected positions will serve a one-year term. Candidates must be general members of the North Tabor Neighborhood Association; membership is granted to any resident, renter, property owner or representative of business, government agency or organization with North Tabor’s boundaries. Experience is great, but not required for any position. Board members must attend monthly neighborhood meetings (3rd Tuesday each month from 6:30pm – 8:30pm), and contribute additional time as needed to events, committees and projects. Board members must also complete their job duties in a timely and thorough manner and attend trainings offered by Southeast Uplift and similar parties. More information about board membership can be found in NTNA’s by-laws, which can be found here. The following positions will be vacant as of October, 2014.
