Butler Board Elections
Nominations Now Being Accepted for BTNA Board of Directors
The Butler Tarkington Neighborhood Association is looking for a few good men and women to serve on the Board of Directors!
The annual election for the BTNA Board will be held at the BTNA meeting on October 8, 2012 @ 7:00pm at the Martin Luther King Community Center (40th and Illinois). We hope to fil…l all ten (10) vacant board member positions at this meeting. The two-year term of office for these positions begins on January 1, 2013 and ends on December 31, 2015. After new members are appointed, we will vote in November for the three open Executive Committee positions (Secretary, Treasurer, Vice President).
Nominees should have a desire to invest time and energy on projects to benefit Butler Tarkington. Board members spend an average of about six hours monthly on BTNA activities and meetings, and are involved hands-on on BTNA committees. Nominees must be members of BTNA (with dues paid as of October 8, 2012).
BTNA is active 12 months of the year. Through its volunteers, BTNA monitors the developments in the Butler area and works with city officials to promote neighborhood safety and improvement. The organization communicates with its stakeholders on activities in the neighborhood, promotes its member businesses to the community, and sponsors numerous special events.
The deadline for nominations is October 6, 2012. All nominations will then be reviewed by the Nominating Committee which will select nominees for a slate. The slate will be presented to the membership prior to the election.
