Call for Board Candidates

We are looking to expand our Board of Directors!  We are particularly looking for a candidate who is able and willing to serve as treasurer of the Board.  Treasurer responsibilities are to:

  • Coordinate financial matters with our fiscal sponsor, Southwest Neighborhood Assembly (SWNA)

  • Record donations and thank donors
  • Approve requests for reimbursement for Friends activities
  • Provide annual budget and income/expense statement

In addition, board members are expected to participate in 3-4 community events each year, ranging from work parties in Titanic Memorial Park to staffing tables on behalf of the Friends at other neighborhood events.  Board members are also expected to work on 1-2 projects each year.

Our ideal Board member:

  • Supports NPS’s vision that Titanic Memorial Park is an historic park worth preserving.
  • Supports the Friends as a donor and/or volunteer
  • Will attend monthly board meetings (1.5 – 2 hours)
  • Will commit to 5 hours of work per month, excluding Board meetings
