Update May 4, 2016: In the RNA’s most recent regular meeting, standing rules were passed requiring candidates to declare their candidacy in person at a meeting no later than one meeting before the General Membership meeting at which the election will occur. That means that any candidates must declare their candidacy in person at the meeting on May 9th.
The Richmond Neighborhood Association (RNA) elections are just around the corner!
In June, we will be electing or re-electing at least eight board members.
We have new election rules in place.
- Declare your candidacy: You must declare your candidacy in person at an RNA meeting prior to election night.
If you have any interest in joining the RNA board please come to the next regular meeting on Monday, May 9th to declare your candidacy. This next regular RNA meeting is your last chance to run for a board seat in our June 2016 election.
- Candidate statements: If possible, we’d like you to bring a short candidate statement with you to the meeting. It doesn’t have to be a formal essay, just 250 words (or less) about why you would like to join the RNA board. But don’t worry if your candidate statement isn’t ready for the May meeting.
Candidate statements are voluntary, and can be accepted until May 23rd.
We believe that the RNA should be representative of the entire neighborhood. We need diverse voices and new energy on the board. So please come to the regular May meeting (details below) to explore running for a board seat. And if you don’t have the time or the interest in running for a board seat, please share this message with your neighbors. Let’s shine a light on the election process and get more people involved on the local level!
