Extended Deadline: Opportunity to Apply to streets.mn Board Ends Wednesday

The streets.mn Board Development Committee is extending the deadline to apply for the streets.mn board by 48 hours to 8:00 a.m. Wednesday morning.

Express your interest here:

We’re working hard to make sure our board looks more and more like the people who live in Minnesota’s communities. We’re building our capacity to support our mission and writers. Are you a person who brings one of these perspectives?
  • Are you Femme/Trans/Woman?
  • Are you Black, Indigenous, or a Person of Color?
  • Are you over 50 or under 25?
  • Do you live in a historically redlined neighborhood?
  • Do you live in greater Minnesota?
  • Do you have experience managing volunteers or with fundraising?
  • Are you a streets.mn forum user?

If you answered, “Yes,” to any of those questions, then we would be a stronger team with you on the board. We hope YOU will put your name in the mix.

But maybe you want to know more before raising your hand. Are you wondering what board members do, and what the commitment is for a board member? The short answer is about 10 hours a month, and you can read the long answer in the form to express interest.

Me, I’ve done it for four years because I value streets.mn influence. We need to update this, but check out some of the results we’ve gotten. Plus, it’s a great resume builder (looking at where former board members now work, it’s a great network builder, too).
If you love streets.mn, but you don’t write because of your current job, or it just isn’t your thing, here’s another way you can contribute. You have until Wednesday morning to step up.

Deadline 8am Wednesday, November 14

About Janne Flisrand

Janne Flisrand spends her time thinking about how people interact with the space around them. Why do they (or don't they) walk or bike or shop somewhere? How do spaces feel? Why do people sit here and not there? Why bus instead of bike, bike instead of drive? What sorts of spaces build community, and what sorts kill it? Can spaces build civic trust and engagement?
