What Is Your Super Power?

Your Gifts Are Needed on our Board and/or Committees

It is time for Board Elections and we have numerous positions to fill!  We are facing a new world of great challenges and opportunities. What is your super power? Let's make this journey together and grow into a better Rose City Park Neighborhood!

We need your help to develop and activate a vision for a healthy, sustainable future. If interested in serving on the Board please submit your Bio and Head Shot (photo) by May 16, 2022. It will be added to the site so the public can review all candidates before May 24, 2022, candidate election day.
