The Mid-City Neighborhood Organization (MCNO) is dedicated to improving the quality of life for all residents of Mid-City New Orleans. MCNO is made up of its Members and a governing volunteer Board of Directors. Directors serve two-year terms and are expected to attend monthly board and general membership meetings, as well as other community and committee meetings on an ad hoc basis.
MCNO membership will elect six candidates to the MCNO Board of Directors at MCNO’s December meeting, to be held on Monday, December 14 at 6:30 in the Warren Easton Cafeteria at 3019 Canal Street. If you would like to run for election to one of these positions, please e-mail email@example.com by December 7, 2015, stating your desire to run for the Board and including a brief paragraph-long biography and/or platform, which will be published on the MCNO website and social media platforms, as well as distributed at the December 14, 2015 general membership meeting. Candidates who timely register according to these guidelines will be listed on the printed ballot – any candidates who do not will have to run as write-in candidates.
You must be a Mid-City resident and MCNO member at the time of election to be elected, and you can join the MCNO now by visiting http://mcno.org/about/join/. You can see a map of MCNO at http://mcno.org/about-mid-city/map/. Only current MCNO members may vote at the elections, and up to two adults per member household may vote. Because there are six positions up for election, each voter may vote for up to six candidates, but only one vote per voter per candidate will count.
MCNO values diversity and an inclusive culture. We encourage nominations from all Mid-City residents and MCNO members without regard to race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, national origin, marital status, citizenship, disability, and veteran status.
