The Civic Council is Looking for a Few New Trustees

The Park Slope Civic Council needs you! Start off your 2018 with community service!! We are looking for Civic Council members to serve on our Board of Trustees. It’s a great opportunity to work with your neighbors. And being a Trustee provides outlets for your energy and talents for a good cause. The mission of the Park Slope Civic Council is to promote the health, vitality and character of the Park Slope neighborhood and advocate for the interests of residents, businesses and others with a stake in the community. Help us carry this forward!

PSCC has been dedicated to improving Park Slope since 1896, and our efforts continue today! These are some of the ways we pursue our goal:

• Annual Core Events: House Tour, Halloween Parade, Civic Sweep, Toys for Tots, Mulchfest, and Food for Thought Fundraiser.

• Community-Building Activities: Grants to local non-profit organizations, scholarships for high school seniors, forums on subjects of community interest, and the Ortner Preservation Awards.

• Advocacy: Expansion of the Historic District, transforming Fourth Avenue, fighting for an affordable neighborhood supermarket, supporting small businesses

In June 2018, PSCC’s members will elect new trustees. New trustees can serve up to three consecutive 3-year terms. In addition to attending regular monthly September-to-June board meetings, trustees serve on at least one standing committee. To be eligible to be a trustee, an individual must be up-to-date on his/her membership dues and have been a member for the 3 months prior to the June Annual Meeting.

We look forward to hearing from you. AND, PLEASE, if you feel compelled to say, “Let Janet (or George) do it,” please take the obvious next step – reach out to that person and send them this link!
