BOARD OF DIRECTORS RECRUITMENT
An Elections Committee is appointed in the summer to recruit applicants for board membership. Candidates who meet the qualifications to stand for office meet with the Elections Committee & the selected new members are presented at the Annual Meeting.
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.
