New Trustee Recruitment

Interested in becoming involved with civic and community service in our neighborhood? The Park Slope Civic Council is seeking community members to serve on our Board of Trustees. Being a Civic Council Trustee provides a rewarding opportunity to volunteer for the betterment of our community. The Civic Council provides outlets for your passions and talents. Our mission 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. We encourage you to become active in making this a reality!

The Park Slope Civic Council has been continually improving Park Slope since 1896! Here are some ways we pursue our goals:

Annual Core Events: House Tour, Halloween Parade, Civic Sweep, 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 2022, PSCC’s members will elect new trustees. Trustees are able to 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.
