- What is the Board? The Board of Directors is the governing body of LU. These volunteers set the strategic direction of the organization, evaluate the performance of the Executive Director, and make decisions about key positions.
- How is the Board elected? LU’s Board of Directors are elected through a democratic process. Each year, all eligible candidates are put on a slate and elected by our membership.
- Who is eligible to be an LU member? Any member in good standing above the age of 18 who resides in Lawrenceville, or has resided in Lawrenceville for more than 365 days in the last 15 years.
- What Board positions are available: There are two kinds of Board positions: by-ward seats (which are based on each neighborhood to ensure geographic diversity of the Board) and at-large seats (which are open to any eligible member). Each Board member serves a 2-year term and elections are staggered, so roughly half of our Board seats are up for election each year. Nine (9) at-large seats are up for election in 2022. There are 13 candidates (including 5 current Board members running for re-election) in the current slate.
