Our Board

Nomination and Application Process

There are no at-large board member openings at this time. When a spot does open up, we will announce the process here and applications may be completed by following this link and returning applications by e-mail to our Executive Director (nanci@seuplift.org) and Board Chairs (boardchair@seuplift.org). 

For Neighborhood Associations (NA) nominating a SE Uplift board member, the first step is for your NA board chair to complete and return this Board Member Nomination Form. SE Uplift will provide your nominees with our Digital Orientation Handbook with important organizational materials to read, sign and submit so we can arrange to seat the new board representative at an upcoming board meeting.  

Purpose

Each director shall endeavor to promote the objectives of Southeast Uplift to the best of their ability. Each is expected to attend board meetings, to effectively communicate between the Board and the organization they may represent, and, to personally promote and participate in the organization’s activities.

Declaration of Unity

The Southeast Uplift neighborhood program board of directors affirms the rights of all citizens to live and work without fear of intolerance because of their age, disability, income, gender, religion, sexual orientation, or their ethnic, racial or national origin.

We honor and encourage the diversity within our neighborhoods and strive to have full participation from all our various groups on our board and in our neighborhood associations.

Board Meetings

Our board welcomes members of our community to attend our executive meetings and board meetings. If you would like to bring an item to the board and be placed on the agenda, please follow the process outlined here. The Executive Committee, with the support of SE Uplift’s Executive Director, will determine if the topic should be brought before the board.

Board meetings are usually held on the first Monday of the month at 7pm, here at SE Uplift in the Fireside Room.  The Executive Committee meets the third Monday of the month at 6pm, here at SE Uplift on the 2nd Floor. During COVID-19 all meetings are being held remotely until further notice.
