2019-2020 LHENA Leadership Team
Board of Directors
The Board of Directors oversees the direction and maintenance of LHENA, its programs, and its funds. The Board is composed of 11 community members, either neighbors and representatives of local businesses, who take an interest in the well-being of the neighborhood. Ten of the seats are 2-year terms, one is 1-year. Each spring, six of the 11 seats are up for re-election. Director elections are held at the neighborhood annual meeting every April. As a renter or homeowner, you can both vote and run for this position.
