atwater village signSubmitted by the Atwater Village Neighborhood Council

Interested in joining the Atwater Village Neighborhood Council? We are looking for a new board member!

Our longtime South Atwater Rep, Ginger Damon has left the board to pursue new opportunities, which means we have an open seat for our South Atwater Resident Representative. Interested parties must meet these requirements:
A stakeholder who resides in the South Atwater Area and is 16 years or older.

The new board member will hold that seat until the next Atwater Village Neighborhood Council(AVNC) elections in April 2013. The new board member can run for re-election of their seat at that point.

Board members are expected to participate at AVNC Board of Governor meetings, on board committees, and support the overall efforts of the neighborhood council.

Any interested parties should email their interest by 7pm on Monday, November 11th to Board Secretary – Mario Cardenas, mario@atwatervillage.org. The candidates shall attend the November 14th board meeting to make a statement as to why they would like to join the board.

The candidate selection process on November 14th will be done in the following manner as outlined by the AVNC bylaws (Article V, Section 6C):
C. If only one (1) Stakeholder has made application for a vacant seat, then a vote of the Board shall be taken and the applicant installed by a two-thirds (2/3) vote of the Board. If more than one (1) Stakeholder has made an application for an empty seat, then an open and fair vote shall be taken at the
next regular meeting by all Stakeholders present. The vote shall be presided over by the Board and shall include one (1) vote per Stakeholder.

The full AVNC bylaws about be found here: http://www.atwatervillage.org/bylaws

The new board member will immediately assume their seat on the board.

Any questions about the opportunity or selection process can be directed toward mario@atwatervillage.org.
