Board of Directors

The Bowmanville Community Organization is made up of a Board of Directors that manage the operations of the BCO. These are all volunteer positions. We seek new BCO Board Member Directors every two years during the elections at our Fall Annual meeting in October.

Neighborhood residents can nominate themselves or other residents to join the Board. The term of office is two years. Positions on the Board are listed below:

1 – President
1 – Vice President
1 – Secretary
1 – Treasurer
12 – Board of Directors Position

We ask that Board members attend regular board meetings on the third Thursday of each month, volunteer at least 3 of our annual events, attend at least 2 First Friday Happy Hours, and participate in at least one or two of the following BCO committees:

Planning & Development
Events
Membership
Communications
Gardening

Nominating deadline is August of the election year (every 2 years).  We can also fill vacancies as they come up throughout the year.  You can nominate yourself or someone you know; however, we like the Board to be made up of local residents. Please submit names to secy@bcochicago.org.  You can also print and drop off the BCO Board Nominating Form, linked below, if preferred.
