Why vote for your neighborhood organization board

Neighborhood boards are important local forces for change. They make investments and decisions about your community. You can make sure the board members making these decisions and setting priorities for neighborhood organization activities represent you by voting in board elections.

How to run for your board

Some organizations request an application ahead of time, but all neighborhoods allow nominations on election day.

Follow your organization’s process. In many cases, this includes attending the annual meeting and giving a statement about why you want to be on the board.


You can run for your neighborhood organization's board if you live in the neighborhood. In many cases, you can also run if you're a business owner or work in a neighborhood. Check with the organization to find out if there is a seat available for non-residents.

Why you should run for the board

Serving on your neighborhood organization board is a great way to get to know your neighbors and help guide projects and programs that will make your neighborhood better place to live, work or visit.

If you're still deciding if you want to serve on your neighborhood board:

  • Request a meeting with your neighborhood organization’s executive director, coordinator or board members
  • Ask questions to understand board member expectations and responsibilities
  • Start going to your neighborhood organization’s monthly meetings and events
  • Volunteer at neighborhood events and get to know other volunteers and community members
