The most important meeting of the year!

Every year in April the JWN elects its Executive Board to oversee the neighborhood association

All board positions are open each year and anyone living or owning or managing a business or nonprofit in the JWN may run for any position either by contacting the JWN or self-nominating on the floor at the time of the election. However, we recommend that any interested members contact the Board to learn about the positions and workload.

This year, the Nominating Committee was approached by two members who expressed interest in running and five of the current Board members are running to retain their seats.

Current Board members must stand for re-election to keep their seats/positions. There are two titled positions, Chair and Vice Chair, and five at-large positions. The Nominating Committee, comprised of a board member and two residents, prepares a slate of candidates and ensures that we have enough people to at least fill all seven positions. Each position is voted on separately.

Notices for the election are sent out in our Winter print newsletter delivered to every address in the JWN and via our monthly eNews.
