Board Elections Next Month: June 13th

What can be more interesting and satisfying than getting to know your neighbors and working with them on fun events, complex land-use problems, and improved safety and livability, all while learning how the City that we love functions?  Service on the Buckman Community Association Board is an excellent opportunity to gain knowledge on how things work, for service, collegiality, and a place to foster and expand your own creative notions.  Terms of service are two years and generally require one monthly meeting, as well involvement on a committee or action project of your choice.  A number of Board positions will be open this year starting in July, and we hope you’ll consider joining us at the BCA. The election will be held on June 13th at our regular meeting space, the Multnomah County Building at 501 SE Hawthorne.  Please consider a term of Board service!  Contact buckmanboard@googlegroups.com for further information.
