SOSNA Board Elections

UPDATED: SEPTEMBER 2020

The SOSNA Board of Directors is a working volunteer Board that establishes the policies and helps implement the programs and activities of the organization. The SOSNA board is an elected volunteer body, made up of 15 people from the neighborhood. Each board member serves a 3-year term and can only serve 2 consecutive terms, for a total of 6 years.

 

This year we will have a maximum of five (5) open positions to fill on the Board. While we are open to all candidates from our membership, this year we are hoping to find candidates with one or more of the following:

 

  • Accounting/non-profit finance background or prior experience on a finance committee

  • Prior non-profit board experience with a successful track record in fundraising and development

  • An engaged community leader involved with immigrant populations

  • An engaged community leader involved with a local religious institution at a leadership or board level

  • An engaged individual who is a woman/woman-identifying, LGBTQIA+, and/or person of color

 

SOSNA’s Board of Directors strives to be representative of our population of neighbors. Our Board of Directors and volunteers shape our programs and initiatives as we work towards community safety that supports and heals, not disenfranchises and displaces. We continue to be committed to creating a diverse board that represents our neighborhood in terms of race/ethnic groups, professions, education levels, ages, abilities and genders. All nomination applications are very welcome.
