Want to be a member of our Neighborhood Council?
We have a powerful team of leaders on our Neighborhood Council. Do you have what it takes to join us?
The Sunland-Tujunga Neighborhood Council has two board member vacancies. A seat is open for a Group Representative and for Second Vice-President of Outreach.
Vacancies - Vacancies on the Board may be filled by appointments made by the remaining Board members. Appointees must meet the same qualifications as elected Board members as set forth in Article V, Section 1. In selecting appointees to the Board, the Board shall pursue diversity in stakeholder representation, and assure that no one stakeholder group becomes a majority of the Board.
Duties of the 2nd Vice President of Outreach:
Second Vice President – Shall chair the Outreach Committee. He/She shall assume the duties of the President when both the President and First Vice President are unable to do so.
To be a Group representative, one must provide proof of membership in a group that falls into the category they wish to represent. That group must possess a facility and/or hold regular meetings within the boundaries of the STNC, or the candidate must live, and the candidate must attend meetings at that branch of the organization. Stakeholders must be 16 years old at the time of filing for candidacy.
Anyone interested in filling these positions are asked to submit a statement announcing their desire to fill the vacancy and their qualifications to do so. These may be submitted in person to the STNC office or by email to our secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org.
They must be submitted at least 24 hours in advance of the next General Meeting.
At the February 14, 2018 General Board meeting, all of the candidates’ statements will be copied and handed to the assembled board members. Additional copies will be made available for stakeholders in attendance. Each candidate will be given 2 minutes to address the board and public in order to present their interest and qualifications. A question and answer session will follow and then the board will vote by show of hands for each candidate.
This is an exciting opportunity to become part of our team!
