Why do we have officers?

Our current board and officers are comprised of a core group of neighbors who are deeply committed to seeing Cooper Park flourish. Having a small board allows for some flexibility in meeting times, delegating tasks, and making sure we cover every concern raised by neighbors during the infancy of our organization. You are always welcome to sit in on a board meeting which are generally held the second Tuesday of the month. 

Following the adoption of official organization Bylaws, the Officers and Board of Directors will be nominated and voted on by members in good standing. Until that time, the officers are installed by the steering committee.
