Make Your Neighborhood Council an Official Member of the Citywide Alliance!
The Los Angeles Citywide Alliance of
Neighborhood Councils has been an important forum for community activists
throughout the City. The large and diverse turnout to its meetings is an
indicator of its relevance.
With the growing number of
certified councils, the steering committee of the Alliance would like to change
the structure of the organization to make it more effective. First, we would
like to formalize the organization by creating memberships and second, begin to
address policy issues facing the City.
At this moment there are no
members of the Alliance. Our meetings consist of activists from neighborhood
councils throughout the City, but they do not speak on behalf of their council.
That is one o the primary reasons why the Alliance does not take votes.
We would like to change
that. We are asking that each neighborhood council adopt the attached resolution and assign an individual to represent
the future your council as a delegate. The Delegate will have a voice in
planning of the Alliance and participate in the governance of the association.
There is no cost or dues to
join, just a commitment to participate. We will continue to conduct our
gatherings every other month, and everyone is invited, even encouraged to
attend. The newly adopted By-Laws
of the Alliance can be found by clicking here.
