First Member Meeting & Officer Elections

Austin Public Library’s Manchaca Branch
5500 Manchaca Rd., Austin, TX, 78745

The APNA Steering Committee is done laying the foundation for a future NA – This is when the magic happens. Leaders within our community (like you!) will come together to help this neighborhood in so many ways.

To help us all respect everyone’s time and so we can best be prepared for our meeting this Sunday, here is the Order of Business.  The goal is that the business of the meeting be conducted transparently, but efficiently.  Therefore, we will stick to the business listed, let everyone get back to their Sundays and dive into specific neighborhood issues at the first full NA meeting.

Get involved:

  • Become a member at our first meeting or do it ahead of time – Get your membership application filled out now
  • Consider running for an officer position at that meeting – learn about the officer positions available here and come to our first meeting ready to make a brief statement about why we should vote for you.
  • Volunteer with one of the future NA committees – sign up at our first meeting or send us an email at telling us what you’re interested in working on and we’ll keep you apprised of upcoming opportunities.
  • Help us spread the word about our first meeting – print and pass out our first member meeting flier to your neighbors! LONG version of flier  —  SHORT version of flier

The future NA could:

  • Fund raise for projects that will benefit our community.
  • Organize the community in neighborhood improvement projects and even maybe have some fun!
  • Improve our parks, ease traffic, and make our neighborhood safer.
  • Keep the community apprised of City and development changes affecting our quality of life, allowing us to have an active part in our neighborhood’s future.
  • Work with City staff to effectively address our pressing neighborhood needs.

We are a Neighborhood Association (NA) – NOT a Homeowner’s Association (HOA)

A Neighborhood Association WILL NOT tell you what color to paint your house, or tell you what to plant in your yard.  A Neighborhood Association WILL build community among those who live and work in a neighborhood, inform them about news and city issues affecting their area, strengthening quality of life for all.
