January 2021 Special Election

Join the Armatage Neighborhood Association Board

Love our neighborhood and want to get more involved?  The ANA will hold a special election for one open board seat at the January 19 meeting at 6:30pm on Zoom. Register to get this month’s Zoom link here.

Members of underrepresented communities are especially encouraged to run, including renters, seniors, residents with disabilities, and residents who identify as LGBTQ+ or BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and/or People of Color).

Time Commitment and Duties:
ANA Meetings are held the third Tuesday of each month from 6:30-8:30pm and board members are expected to participate in these monthly meetings as well as serve on a committee and volunteer for events (the ANA held two in person outdoor masked and distanced events in 2020). As a board member, you will have a critical role in shaping our neighborhood nonprofit for years to come. Bylaws that govern our non-profit organization are at https://armatage.org/ana-bylaws/.

If elected, your seat will have a shortened term from January 2021 – May 2022, after which point you can choose to step off the board or run again for a full two-year term.

Register to Run:

Your name, picture and responses (excluding your contact info) will be published in a voter guide at armatage.org on Monday, January 18 and shared with attendees during the meeting (January 19). If you have any questions about this process, please contact our Coordinator, Lauren, at anacoordinator@armatage.org.
