Community Board Application Process Now Underway
It’s the most wonderful time of the year – Manhattan Community Board membership applications are now open for submission!
The oft-polarizing (volunteer) political machine for the proverbial people of New York is looking for “passionate and engaged New Yorkers who are dedicated to making a difference in their neighborhoods.” Go get ’em.
To be considered for the Class of 2019-2021 of
bored board members, apply online here or complete a paper application. Word to the wise: the online app must be completed in one sitting. All applications are due by 5:00 pm on Friday, February 8, 2019. And then comes the interview process.
Appointments will be announced in the spring.
There are term limits to consider, too. Last month, New Yorkers overwhelmingly voted to pass “Proposal 3,” which imposes an eight-year term limit on the volunteer members sitting on community boards around the Five Boroughs (i.e. four consecutive two-year terms, but can rejoin after two-year hiatus).
