BOARD OF DIRECTORS RECRUITMENT
Board Elections are held each year at the Annual Meeting, which is typically held every November. An Elections Committee Chair is appointed in late spring, and open slots are announced in June.
The Elections Committee actively encourages nominations from Reservoir Hill residents & Community Partners. The committee seeks to achieve equitable representation on the Board across geography, income levels, and race within the neighborhood. Emphasis in selection is given to candidates who have been in residence and active in community affairs sufficiently to understand community dynamics and RHIC strategy, and be able to represent broad community interests.
Candidates who meet the qualifications to stand for office meet with the Elections Committee during the summer, appear before the Community Meeting in the fall, & the selected new members are presented at the Annual Meeting.
