Run for the Board

The Rosemary District Association Board needs your voice. The greater diversity of people involved in the RDA Board, the more our neighborhood thrives and remains a wonderful place to live, work, play and grow — for everyone: young and old, renters and homeowners, businesses, not-for-profit organizations and property owners.

8 Reasons to Run for the Board*
  1. You want to stay on top of what’s happening in Rosemary District.

  2. You want to contribute your voice to ensure Rosemary District is a diverse and vibrant community.

  3. You want to meet your neighbors, city officials, developers and local business owners.

  4. You want to flex your leadership muscles—or learn how to.

  5. You want to learn about community engagement, neighborhood organizations or nonprofit boards.

  6. You want to give back in an easy, meaningful way.

  7. Rather than complaining, you want to be a part of finding solutions.

  8. You love Rosemary District—and want others to love it too!

Any Resident Member or "Other Stakeholder" Member may submit a Nomination Form before the deadline on January 13 to run for a seat on the Board. ("Other Stakeholder" Members include Property Owners, Representatives of Businesses in Rosemary District and Representatives of Not-for-Profits in Rosemary District.)

Candidates must, if elected: 

  • Commit to a full year of service on the RDA Board (through February 2021),

  • Plan to attend and participate in all Board meetings — by phone, if necessary (currently held on the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 5:30 PM),

  • Contribute additional time and/or expertise to Rosemary District beyond Board meeting attendance.

We encourage you to learn more about serving on the Board by speaking to a Board member and attending a Board meeting.
