What is a Neighborhood Board or Steering Committee?

Every organization needs a core group of dedicated individuals who are committed to maintaining the group’s vitality.. Neighborhood Boards or Steering Committees convene meetings, maintain records, and generally ensure that the association is meeting its member’s needs. The Board or Steering Committee is elected by the members of the Association, or as otherwise specified in the bylaws. A neighborhood’s leadership will not assume the role of an administrative or legislative body.
