Board of Directors

Become a Board Member!

Our Annual February Meeting is a time to look back on what the neighborhood board achieved and what the upcoming year will bring. It is also the time for the community to select the new board.

Anyone who lives or owns a business in the St. Anthony West is able to vote and run for the board. It doesn’t matter if you own or rent, if you have lived here 6 months or 60 years. If you have the desire to serve, we encourage you to apply. We are always looking for new voices and perspectives.

Board members serve one-year terms.  Meetings are held on the second Thursday of the month 6:30-8 PM. Currently all meetings are held virtually via the Zoom platform. Board members are also expected to volunteer at neighborhood events throughout the year.  Do you have an idea to improve the neighborhood? Start or join a committee or task force to accomplish your goals. There is also the option to serve as an alternate member if you are not ready to commit to being a full member.

Serving on the board is a great way to build new skills, engage with our neighbors, advocate for neighborhood improvements and learn about happenings in the area and city at large. Please feel free to reach out to Board Chair Chris Linde with any questions or to learn more at chris.linde@stawno.org or call 612 758-0020.

Now is the time for you to get involved, please fill out the application below, attend the meeting and vote for your new St Anthony West Neighborhood Organization Board.

What we do

Board members volunteer in a variety of ways for the community – conduct the business of STAWNO at monthly meetings, ambassadors for the neighborhood, and provide hands-on support for the 5K Run/Walk fundraiser and the Summer community gathering at Dickman Park. STAWNO has a tradition of volunteering and all are encouraged to be involved and participate. If time permits, please attend a board meeting or consider joining the board. Board members are elected at the annual meeting in February. If meetings are not for you, email us with an idea, problem, announcement, or issue. We regularly communicate through our newsletter, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.Board meetings are held on the second Thursday of the month at 6:30 p.m. Meetings are open to the public and we welcome your comments, questions, and participation. We have switched to using Zoom for meetings and encourage you to join us virtually. The meeting links are in our calendar and sent via our email newsletter.
