Announcing Board Elections in July

The June meeting is canceled tonight.

Mt. Scott-Arleta Neighborhood Association will hold elections for Board positions July 1st, 2020. The MSANA Board consists entirely of volunteers. Board members must be Neighborhood Association members (see below) and must have attended at least two meetings within the current calendar year in order to be eligible to be elected. (See Bylaws Article VI, Section 2).

Membership in the Neighborhood Association is open to residents, property owners, business licensees and representatives of governmental agencies and nonprofit organizations located within the neighborhood boundaries. To qualify as a member one must also have confirmed their membership status on a meeting sign-in sheet. (See Bylaws Article IV, Section 1).

Board positions include Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, Past Chair, SE Uplift Board Member, and At-Large Members as committee chairs or event coordinators. All it takes is a few nights available each month and the desire to see your neighborhood improve as the city grows. Contact us if you are interested!

The June meeting is canceled tonight. Be safe, see our social posts about opportunities to support Black, Indigenous, People of Color businesses and organizations, and connect with your neighbors.

To join the meeting, click on the Google Hangouts link above. If you have not used this tool before, you can find information here – Hangouts Meet Training and HelpAt the May meeting, we will brainstorm answers to the question:

What could we all do to provide mutual aid and support for our neighbors during the COVID-19 crisis? How can MtScottArleta Neighborhood Association help?

To quote PDX COVID-19 Mutual Aid Network, in times of crisis we can respond to the needs of our community with collective power and mutual aid. This can be as simple as checking with neighbors at a safe distance for example. If you are unable to join us at the meeting for our brainstorming session, you can submit your own ideas here and we will be sure to discuss them.
