Run for the MHNA Board

The MHNA board needs your voice. The greater diversity of people involved in the MHNA board, the more our neighborhood thrives and remains a wonderful place to live, work, learn, play and grow—for everyone: renters, homeowners, students, elders.

Any Resident Member or Non-resident Member who has been a member for at least twenty (20) days can run for an open Director's seat. For 2020, we are particularly eager to bring expertise and interests in management, finances, creative placemaking, transportation / infrastructure, and land use and development.

We also need diverse perspectives. So, if you have at least an interest in any of these issues (or others) and want to be a part of something big, please consider running.

Here are 8 great reasons to run for the MHNA board:

  1. You want to stay on top of what’s happening in the neighborhood.
  2. You want to contribute your voice to ensure our neighborhood is a diverse and vibrant community.
  3. You want to meet your neighbors, city officials, developers and local business owners.
  4. You want to flex your leadership muscles—or learn how to.
  5. You want to learn about community engagement, neighborhood organizations or nonprofit boards.
  6. You want to give back in an easy, meaningful way.
  7. Rather than complaining, you want to be a part of finding solutions.
  8. You love our neighborhood—and want others to love it too!
