Please note: Mid-term vacancies are filled, not by election, but by the less formal process of community Q&A and Board confirmation. Please fill out an online or paper application, then print or scan the completed document and send a copy to: secretary@nhwnc.net

Each applicant should attend upcoming General Board Meetings prepared to address the board and their fellow stakeholders. Candidates will be asked to briefly introduce themselves, and tell the assembly how they’re qualified, why they wish to serve on the NHWNC Board, and what aspect of North Hills West Neighborhood Council Board service motivates them most.

Discussion and possible action may be taken during the course of the February 17th General Board Meeting. If one or both seats remain vacant this process will remain open to applicants until both seats are filled.”
