JACC Elections Coming–Nominate Now

The annual membership meeting and election of Board of Director members is coming up on October 22.  Nominations for board membership are open through September 18th.  The notice has been posted in North News and on the JACC website.  I’ll repeat it here:

Jordan Neighborhood Annual Election

October 22, 2009 at 7:00 p.m.

Nominations for Board of Directors open through September 18, 2009.

Nine openings available.  These are volunteer (unpaid) positions. Candidates must:

  • Live in the neighborhood (between West Broadway, Emerson and Lowry Avenues), or
  • Own property in the neighborhood, or
  • Be employed by a business, non-profit or government organization located in the neighborhood

To nominate yourself or someone else, request a nomination packet from the Jordan Area Community Council (JACC) office by calling 612-353-3601 or e-mail request to nom-comm@jordanmpls.org.

Board members are expected to be a member of at least one committee and attend at least two meetings a month (the board meeting and their committee meeting).  Board members should expect to spend about 10 hours a month on Jordan-related activities (includes meeting time).

It is essential that JACC continue to rebuild the organization with board members who care and who are committed to bettering the neighborhood and not their personal situation. Please consider running for the board if you have the time and interest to devote to this neighborhood.  It’s a great way to make a difference.  If you know of someone who would do a good job, please talk them into running for a seat or nominate them (with their permission, of course).  Help ensure that no one ever lines their own pockets unfairly using Jordan funds again.
