The Warren, 4400 Osseo Road, Minneapolis
Join friends and neighbors at the Victory Neighborhood Association’s annual meeting. Members will report on 2016 activities, attendees will have the opportunity share their priorities for 2017 and beyond, and representatives from Pillsbury United Communities will be presenting about their forthcoming grocery store on 44th and Humboldt. Four board seats, one without an incumbent, will also be up for election at the meeting. Community meetings are a good opportunity to connect with neighbors and share your perspective on issues that impact the Victory Neighborhood and its residents.
The Victory Neighborhood Association will be holding elections for four seats on its board of directors at its September 28th meeting. Of those seats, three incumbents will be up for re-election. Directors serve two year terms and are asked to spend about 12-15 hours per month on the business of the Victory Neighborhood Association. This includes attending the board meetings on the first Wednesday of the month and the neighborhood meetings on most fourth Wednesdays of the month. Additionally, each director serves on one of ViNA’s subcommittees and may be asked to represent the organization at regional or city meetings or committees. Follow this link to read the board of directors’ contract.
Individuals interested in running for the board must be a resident of Victory, a property owner in Victory, or a business owner in Victory. If you plan to run for a board seat, would like to nominate someone for a board seat, or have questions about board participation, please contact the ViNA office at 612.529.9558. Renters, women, and residents of color are strongly encouraged to run.
