Each year at the Annual Meeting the Whittier Alliance membership elects 5 at-large, volunteer board members to serve a 3 year term. The 5 board members join 10 other board members elected from the neighborhood by fellow residents and property owners, up to 5 business and nonprofit community representatives, and additional elected standing committee chairpersons (all elected by peers, as well).
Serving on a neighborhood board is civic involvement at its most grassroots and most impactful level. The annual Eat Street Festival, the youth-led mural down the street, and even the Whittier International Elementary School itself are examples of Whittier Alliance Board involvement, organizing, and decision-making.
Are you interested in sharing your time and talents with our organization and with your neighbors? Are you looking for a way to meet new people in Whittier and learn something new? This opportunity could be for you!
