Serving on the Board of Directors is a rewarding volunteer opportunity. As a member, individuals have the opportunity to help navigate and oversee the organization’s mission and goals for the district and community. To serve as a Board member, individuals must be a property owner (7 seats), business (4 seats), resident (3 seats), or 'at-large' (1 seat) representative within the District boundaries. One ‘at-large’ seat can be resident, business, property owner, or community member with direct ties to the Tenderloin.

Becoming a Board member, at the minimum, obligates you to at least 4-6 hours of Board and Committee meetings per month for two years, plus proactive volunteer work on behalf of the organization in resource development, outreach/community liaison, and commitment to special projects. Please note the Board attendance policy: Two (2) unexcused and three (excused) absences in a year of a full board meeting(s) could prompt an Executive Committee review and recommendation for removal from Board membership.
