BVNA maintains standing committees made up of volunteers, in order to accomplish many of our objectives. Committees often meet monthly in order to plan projects, provide updates, and discuss new ideas. Please follow our weekly e-news, or contact our office to learn more about the meeting cadence of each committee.
BVNA produces general membership meetings anchored around a rotating set of themes and topics of interest to members, in keeping with our core mission of facilitating a public discussion forum and connecting neighbors with city services, agencies, programs, and elected officials.
The committee seeks to identify content that is timely and relevant, secures speakers, handles facilities & arrangements, event promotion, and day-of logistics such as setup, breakdown, sign-in, A/V, and introducing speakers or moderating the panel. In the past, special guests have included various city and state elected officials, as well as representatives from the PWD, PGW, PPA, OPA, Dept of Revenue, Fire Department, OTIS/Transportation, Streets, L&I, OSHA, School District / Area School Principals, Italian Market district, South Street Headhouse District, and other local community partner groups.
