Selection of CAN Community Council Members

People interested in serving on the CAN Community Council are welcome to apply at any time during the year. Candidates are strongly encouraged to attend a Community Council meeting prior to being considered for service. The Community Council especially invites prospective new members to attend the August or September meetings which will be preceded with a brief orientation for people interested in learning more. Click on the “Meeting Schedule” tab above to find out when meetings will be held. All meetings of the Community Council are open to the public.

The deadline for CAN Community Council applications is September 15th of each year. The Community Council may elect up to 10 members to serve three-year terms to begin in January of the following year. The election of new members will occur at the regularly scheduled Community Council meeting in October or November. All applicants will be notified of status of their application once this vote has occurred.

The CAN Community Council may choose to fill any of the positions that are currently vacant. A person selected to serve in a vacant position would serve for the remainder of the term that corresponds to that position. If you would like to be considered for a position that is currently vacant, then please submit an application prior to June 30th.
