BDNA 2018 Elections_Social Media

Do you find it hard to watch the news, wishing there were something you could do to change the world? Are you tired of only knowing your neighbors from tiny profile pictures on a screen?  Want to make a difference with just a few hours a month?  Then join the Brentwood-Darlington Neighborhood Association (BDNA)!  

What does a board member do?

As a BDNA board member, you’re asked to attend at least 10 of our 12 monthly meetings, which happen the 1st Thursday of every month from 7:00-9:00PM.  At these meetings, board members discuss and vote on neighborhood issues, appoint committees (as needed), and work on projects pertaining to Brentwood-Darlington.  General members are asked (but not required) to occasionally volunteer at events like the Neighborhood Clean-up, Movies in the Park, and National Night Out.

What about the elected officers of the board?

The BDNA has four elected officers: Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary and Treasurer.

  • The Chair is responsible for presiding over meetings, drawing up the agenda, and generally representing the board and neighborhood when necessary. (Average monthly time commitment ~20-30 hours)
  • The Vice Chair assists the Chair and steps in when the Chair is unable to perform their duties. (Average monthly time commitment ~10-15 hours)
  • The Secretary maintains non-financial records and a list of board members, takes minutes at meetings, and answers correspondence. (Average monthly time commitment ~10-15 hours)
  • The Treasurer is responsible for all funds belonging to the BDNA and must maintain records and report on those funds monthly. (Average monthly time commitment ~5-10 hours)

How do I declare my intentions to join the board?

Declare your candidacy using our online form or in-person with this paper form at our annual May meeting, held on the 1st Thursday of the month, 7:00-9:00PM at Brentwood-Darlington Community Center (7211 SE 62nd Ave)Click here for more information and to view our agenda. 

What about committees?

The BDNA currently has three active committees:

  • Land Use and Transportation Committee
  • Events and Communications Committee
  • Equity and Inclusion Committee

Each of these committees are headed by 1-2 board members.  You do not have to be a board member to join a committee!

What if I’m unable to make it to meetings, but still want to volunteer?

You don’t have to be a board member to volunteer!  We know that life is busy and many community members are unable to attend monthly meetings.  Do you have a skill you’d like to put to use?  Maybe you’re amazing at social media, have great contacts in the community, or speak another language.  Email us with your talent and we’ll put it to work for as little as one hour a month!
