MCNO Accepting Nominations for Board Elecions

The Mid-City Neighborhood Organization is looking for “a few good folks.” Our board elections will be held on December 11, 2017 at 6:30 at MCNO’s regularly scheduled general meeting, in the cafeteria at Warren Easton High school. We are seeking candidates for board positions plus we are setting up committees for those who want to be involved but don’t have enough time for a board commitment.

Getting involved gives you the opportunity to guide the future of a wonderful neighborhood, its land use and preservation, its community activities and commercial developments, and so much more. Besides, we are a GREAT bunch of folks!

Being a board member of MCNO isn’t a passive activity, but it isn’t taxing either. Unless you become a Board Officer, it shouldn’t involve more than 8-10 hours a month, and sometimes less. **Committee members would spend only a few hours a month.**

Such a small price to pay for such a rewarding activity!!! If you are interested, please e-mail us at secretary@mcno.org to learn more. To qualify to run for a position, send your name, contact information, and a paragraph or so explaining why you want to serve that we can print and distribute to MCNO members at and ahead of the December meeting to the same address. You must send this information to us by December 1, 2017 in order for your information to be included on printed ballots – late qualifiers will be invited to run as write-in candidates. MCNO also reserves the right to edit these submissions for length.

**To serve on the board, you must also be a resident of Mid-City or have voting rights in it and be a member in good standing of MCNO. Committee members just have to love Mid-City and be committed to its future success.**

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.
