Letter from the President – The Board of Directors Needs You

By John Kinsey

[singlepic id=304 w=320 h=240 float=right]In June, the CYCA board of directors accepted the resignation of two members: Susan Currier and Kyle Gowen. Kyle led the Safety Committee working with the MPD on National Night Out and on better ways to communicate safety news to CY residents. Susan served on the Membership Committee. We are sad to see them go and thank them for their service.

With their departure, your board is now down to 13 members and we are looking for new board member candidates. Please consider taking an active part in running your neighborhood. All you need is a love for Cooper-Young and a willingness to serve. We will gladly teach you the rest.

If serving on the board seems overwhelming or too large of a commitment, then consider serving on a committee. On the right hand bottom portion of this page you will find a listing of all of our committees.

What do you gain from serving your community? You’ll meet new people who share the same love of our eclectic neighborhood. You’ll learn more about the workings of Cooper-Young, the City of Memphis, and how the CYCA relates to other organizations. You’ll have a voice in events like the Art Auction, the 4-Miler race, National Night Out, the Volunteer Thank You Party, and General Meetings. You’ll be able to feel that you have made a difference in the lives of the 1,680 households in Cooper-Young.

For more information about the Board, contact us at info@cooperyoung.org.

In CY happiness,
