From association president Nicky Morris:

We have quite a few PHNA board officers leaving this year, including myself. The vacancies will be President, Vice President and Secretary. An election for these positions will take place this summer and you can read about the candidates in our June newsletter. If you are interested in running for one of these positions, submit a short statement, by the end of May, stating why residents should vote for you. We will put it in the newsletter and online. I hope some of you seriously consider these positions. Having a strong neighborhood assocation is vital to having a strong neighborhood. I will still be around, but have decided to be the neighborhood watch coordinator, so that I can focus my energies on just the crime issues.

Here’s a description of the positions, per our by-laws:

President:
a. The President shall preside at all meetings of the Board and General Membership.
b. The President, or his or her designee, shall represent the Association in all matters of
general interest to its members.

Chairpersons and Advisory Positions.
e. The President shall designate any adhoc committees as appropriate.

designated.
i. The President shall disburse funds in the absence of the Treasurer.
j. The President shall be responsible for ensuring the revision, update, and maintenance of the
Newsletter.

Vice President:

a. The Vice-President shall perform all duties of the President in the absence of that officer.
b. The Vice-President shall perform other duties as assigned by the President.

and sign-ups need to be performed for Association activities, when sign-ups are due, and
who receives the particular communications from the city or other organizations.
