What if I don’t want to join the Board, but still want to volunteer?
You don’t have to be a board member to participate, only to vote on board decisions. We invite all neighbors to attend meetings, share ideas and concerns, volunteer on committees and at events, and lead special projects! There are also many administrative tasks that require a small time commitment, but serve an important purpose. If you want to participate, there is something for you to do, no matter your capabilities or time availability.
Willing to attend a meeting and report back?
There are many community meetings happening all the time that we don’t have enough people to attend. Just a few are listed below. Is there a meeting you already attend and would like to report to the BDNA on? Let us know!
