Annual BCA Board Elections Thursday June 11th 2020: Candidates Welcome! The Buckman Community Association has a 9 member Board which holds annual elections every June. Terms are generally 2 years. We have several seats up for election this year and encourage all Buckman neighbors to consider running for the Board. Board service requires monthly attendance at a Board and General Meeting held consecutively the second Thursday of each month, 7-9pm. Board members get involved in projects of their choosing, and can serve on committees related to event production, land-use, transportation, sustainability and represent the BCA in wider neighborhood coalition meetings. Our next monthly meeting is Thursday, June 11th, and we'll be meeting virtually. Contact the BCA for the link and to get any answers to your questions about Board service. Please consider serving!
