In between, a new alderman was appointed, an endangered church was preserved and two neighborhood groups merged in a spirit of mutual respect.

What's in store this year? That depends on you.

The East Village Association needs new volunteers every year to help improve the neighborhood, solve community problems and spread the word about local resources. In the next few weeks we'll be looking for candidates for a new board of directors to start serving in April.

The current board will meet Feb. 15 to slate four prospective officers for a March 7 membership vote:

  • The president leads meetings and speak for the association. He also names up to four of the new board members.
  • The vice president aids the president and fills in at meetings.
  • The secretary records the group's actions.
  • The treasurer is in charge of EVA’s finances.

The newsletter editor and webmaster round out EVA's board – recruits are welcome here too. Political candidates are not eligible to be officers, but the city has a Feb. 22 election to keep them busy.

The only requirements to run as an East Village officer are membership in EVA and interest in improving he neighborhood. If you've attended neighborhood events, left comments on the website thought about East Village's direction or just wanted to meet a few of your neighbors, you're potential officer material.

To learn more, contact Greg Nagel or any of the officers listed in the lower-left corner of this page. The slating meeting is set for 6:30 p.m. Feb. 15 at Leona's restaurant, 1936 W. Augusta. Nominations also will be taken from the floor before the election, 7 p.m. March 7 in the Happy Village game room at 1059 N. Wolcott.
