NENA is seeking applicants for the vacant Board seat from the Morris Park neighborhood. Applications are due on September 13, 2017.
NENA is a growing community-based nonprofit organization serving four unique, welcoming neighborhoods with over 14,600 residents and dozens of businesses in the southeast corner of Minneapolis. NENA is dedicated to bettering the quality of life and building a sense of community pride by sponsoring actions which help our environment, businesses and homes. We look for Board of Director members who are energetic, strategically-minded leaders to help NENA and our neighborhoods thrive.
The Morris Park neighborhood is bordered by E. 54th Street on the north; Hiawatha Avenue / MN Highway 55 on the east, excluding the federal property around the Minneapolis VA Health Care System Medical Center; 34th Avenue S. on the west; and the southern boundary of the City of Minneapolis on the south.
If you live (homeowners and renters) in the Morris Park neighborhood, you can nominate yourself (most common); or any NENA member can nominate a Morris Park neighborhood resident as an applicant for the Board. Completed Nomination Forms for the Morris Park seat are due on September 13, 2017.
The NENA Board of Directors will review all applications and appoint a new Board member at its September 28, 2017 meeting. This is a replacement appointment serving from September 2017 to April 2018. The appointed Board member can run to be elected to the seat at the April Annual Meeting and serve a full two year term.
