Beyond the TLAs: Your Neighbors in Action through MNA Committees

Bill Kirwin Article, Front Porch Flyer

By Alison Raffalovich

Through this on-going series, I’ll take you on a brief spin through the various committees of the Mueller Neighborhood Association and introduce you to some key volunteers in each – in the hope that YOU’LL be inspired to get involved!

Steering Committee

These 13 people oversee the MNA overall with general oversight, goals and direction, creating and managing the budget, maintaining the bylaws, etc. Officers for 2019 are co-chairs Preston Tyree and John Wooding; vice-chair Richard Carr; Treasurer Penny Brandt; and me as Secretary. As an all-volunteer group, many of us also balance the demands of a day job, rearing children, or other community and service engagement, so we count on the engagement of neighbors in each specific committee to bring the MNA vision to life and to add their own creative vision and passion.  

Nominations Committee

Dennis Mick is a man who wears many hats, and when he has this hat on, he’s recruiting neighbors willing to serve on the Steering Committee described earlier.  At its best the Steering Committee membership reflects the diversity of Mueller, with people of all ages, backgrounds and experience levels contributing their energy, perspectives and creativity to fulfill the MNA mission.  Dennis is in recruiting mode throughout the year in the leadup to the formal nomination and voting process, which is planned for November of this year.
