Our next meeting is an important one for the neighborhood, as it’s the meeting in which we elect our leadership for the coming year.  Underwood Hills needs you!  We’re looking for fresh faces that want to take the next step in being more active in their community.  It’s an amazing way to meet neighbors, and learn more about what’s going on in our immediate area and how it affects Underwood Hills.  Every position will be up for election, but we specifically need people to fill the following roles:

  • Secretary
  • Membership
  • Communications (which includes Sponsorship, Webmaster, and Newsletter… these are best handled by individuals in each role)
  • Elections

While one person is officially elected for each position, we encourage people to get involved in the committees, as many of the steering committee positions are best handled by a few people. With a little time from some great neighbors, we can continue to ensure Underwood Hills is a great place to live!  To learn more about the positions available, see below.  Please contact Adam Karcz at javamugboy@gmail.com with questions or to express interest in a position.
