Joining means you attend committee meetings, design projects and implement strategies to make our community even better!
What are NENA Committees?
NENA committees are where projects come to life. Many NENA grant, event, and project ideas were generated by committees. There are currently three committees: Green Initiatives, Finance and Fundraising, and the Housing, Commercial and Streetscape Committee.
Who can be on a committee?
Anyone who lives, works or owns property in Minnehaha, Morris Park, Keewaydin or Wenonah, yes! There are no other qualifications, no committee elections. You do not need to be an expert to get involved, we will make sure you get all the background info you need.
How much time commitment is involved?
Only one 90 minute meeting a month. Committee members are welcome, but not required, to volunteer additional time.
When can I join?
The committees are open, so you can join anytime. Just show up to a meeting.
