Board (not Bored) Members Needed for the PNA
Phinney Neighborhood Association
The Phinney Neighborhood Association (PNA) is seeking candidates for its Board of Directors and we would love to hear from you.
We are looking for community members who are passionate about the PNA’s mission to build community, and who are excited to envision and strategize organizational change/programmatic transformation to respond to the pandemic as well as our accelerated effort to become a more diverse and inclusive organization by bringing an equity lens to all that we do. We are looking for people with backgrounds in organizational change/change management toward diversity, equity and inclusion; law; nonprofit management; finance; and/or fundraising. The PNA needs board members who understand or have a lived experience that can inform our work in diversity, equity and inclusion. People of color and those representing the diversity of our community are encouraged to apply.
Board members serve 1 to 3 year terms, starting in January, and generally spend 5 to 8 hours per month on board and committee business and supporting activities. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis; preference for the 2021 term will be given for candidates who apply by September 30, 2020. Start now by responding to this opportunity.
During these times of distancing, meetings are virtual. We look forward to resuming in-person meetings when we can safely gather.
