Your VHCA is powered by the many volunteers who organize fundraisers such as Summerfest, the Tour of Homes and the Highland Mile, participate on the Safety Committee, Budget Committee, Parks Committee, Communications Committee, Grants Committee, Planning Committee and much, much more.
Each fall, the neighborhood elects the VHCA’s Board of Directors (10 members and 1 alternate) to oversee the work of the many committees and identify issues, concerns and opportunities for improving Virginia-Highland. Any resident over 18 years old and willing to invest their time and talents is eligible to be on the ballot and run for the Board.
The Election Committee (now forming) will be accepting bios from those interested in running for the Board. Please review the activities and the mission of the association on vahi.org if you are interested.
To be included on the printed and published ballot, please email a short bio to firstname.lastname@example.org, no later than September 5. Please include the following information in your bio:
– a brief statement on what you would like to accomplish as a member on the 2018/2019 VHCA Board, and
– a paragraph on your experiences in the neighborhood, including but not limited to VHCA committees in which you currently participate or have an interest in being active in.
The Committees page (here), Annual Goals from 2018 and prior years (here) and bios of current board members on vahi.org are particularly informative. The Association’s work is also directed by our Master Plan which may be viewed on the website, as well.
Bios for all candidates will be posted on the VaHi.org website. The Election Committee will accept all nominations of those qualified to serve whose nominations are received more than fifteen (15) days prior to the Annual Association Meeting, which will be held on September 20 at the Inman Middle School Cafeteria from 6:30 – 9:00pm. Grants will be awarded and the 2018/2019 Board of Directors will be elected. The Springdale Park\ Elementary Chorus, led by Music Director Brianne Turgeon, has been invited to perform at the meeting, so be sure to arrive early to hear them! Stay tuned for more details.
Grant applications are due by August 24. Visit the Grants section of this site for more information and to complete an online application.
