2017-2018 Board of Directors

The Victory Neighborhood Association (ViNA) is the neighborhood organization serving the Victory Neighborhood of Minneapolis. Incorporated in 1992 as a 501c3 nonprofit, ViNA’s mission is to build community through inclusion, fairness, and wellness, achieved through communication, outreach, and engagement. The organization was founded as part of Minneapolis’ Neighborhood Revitalization Program which worked to bring increased investment into the city’s neighborhoods. ViNA works to connect neighbors to one another and to the issues that directly impact them to build a more thriving, inclusive, and better Victory Neighborhood.


The Victory Neighborhood Association is governed by a board of directors comprised of Victory stakeholders. Board members oversee the fiscal health of the organization and ensure the strategies of the organization align with its stakeholders’ needs. Board members are elected to two-year terms and elections are held at the organization’s annual meeting on the fourth Wednesday of every September.
