RVN is looking for capable, energetic, community-minded individuals who are willing to commit some of their time and energy to one of the most successful neighborhood organizations in Chicago. If you are an active RVN member and would like to help keep Roscoe Village the vibrant, exciting neighborhood it is, please apply using this the form below. Deadline for submission has been extended to Tuesday, April 2, 2019.
Roscoe Village Neighbors is a non-profit organization managed by an all-volunteer, 12-member Board of Directors. The three-year terms for the Board of Director positions are staggered, so four board seats are up for election each year by members. Directors may be re-elected, but must run for re-election. Director-at-Large positions may be filled by any active RVN member, while executive positions may only be filled by members with at least one year of service on the RVN board as a Director-at-Large.
This year there are four Director-at-Large positions up for election. If you’re interested in running for the board, please come to one of our upcoming events to introduce yourself.
What does being an RVN Board Member entail?
The board meets approximately 10 times a year, on the second Tuesday of most months. Each board member is asked to chair or co-chair two of our committees (which generally takes about 10 hours within a two week period), and to help run Retro on Roscoe, one of the most successful street festivals in Chicago, which takes place on the second weekend in August (August 9-11, 2019). New friendships and lots of fun are two benefits of RVN Board Membership, but, most importantly, you’ll get the satisfaction of knowing that you’re helping to make Roscoe Village the best neighborhood in Chicago!
