That’s right—we can’t do this without you and the support of the community! At our January meeting, on Tuesday, January 27, 2015, TNA will hold an election for a new Board of Directors. To vote, and/or to be eligible for the Board, you simply need to be a current TNA member, and that’s just $5 per year.

The Trinidad Neighborhood Association is governed by a Board of Directors. The Board of Directors is elected among the membership. Any member in good standing may be nominated and, if elected, serve as a member of the Board of Directors for a term of one year.

Board of Directors

Members of the Board of Directors are responsible for the general governance of TNA and to work towards the aim of developing, revising and executing  a long-range strategic plan as well as annual goals and targets for TNA. Some board members may choose to serve as Officers. Officers of TNA  and are elected among the members Board of Directors.  Whether or not a Board member seeks an Officer position, all Board members are encouraged to take on projects towards improving the Trinidad Neighborhood.  Each Board of Directors can determine the frequency of Board meetings.  They’ve historically ranged from monthly to quarterly. It is expected that all Board members plan to attend, and fully participate in Board meetings. There can be up to 10 Members of the Board of Directors.

Officers
