Hi EVNA Members,

Thanks to everyone who made it to last week's EVNA general meeting at Harvey Milk Academy. We had 43 neighbors in attendance! Welcome to all those attending who newly joined, and thanks to current members for renewing! 

Special thanks to our guest presenters: Assemblyman David Chiu with a legislative update, Tre Alan from SF Neighborhood Empowerment, and Susan Detwiler discussing highlights of the Eureka Valley Historical Context Review, and an honorable mention to Rafael Mandelman making a cameo appearance. 

Bringing our membership drive together: We extended an invitation to members who are interested in taking on a greater role within the EVNA. We are getting a lot of renewed interest in volunteering, and the door is always open to people who are solution focused with skills, time and energy to share!

Linked here is a worksheet lays out the available positions for election, and the various committees needing volunteers. Thanks to those who turned in your volunteer sheet - I'll be following up shortly with next steps!  If you missed the opportunity to volunteer on a committee or run for a board position, the linked worksheet is the handout with all the details. Please print it out and email it back to me mark.mchale@evna.org with your preferences.

If you are interested in a Board Officer or Member position- please plan on attending the next BOARD meeting. Feel free to bring a short bio and "what I can bring to EVNA and this position" statements.
