The Association

The Grant Park Neighborhood Association (GPNA) is a volunteer organization that serves as the liaison between Grant Park residents and businesses, and the city government. The city’s Office of Community and Civic Life coordinates the neighborhood associations, which are clustered together into coalitions. Grant Park is part of the coalition known as Central Northeast Neighbors.

At the October 11, 2022, Grant Park Neighborhood Association board meeting, the board discussed and approved a proposal to amend both the association bylaws and board responsibilities document. The proposed changes are highlighted in red in these documents. The most important changes include: i) eliminating the Communications Officer position and distributing the responsibilities formerly held by the Communications Officer to the Secretary and Newsletter Editor. The responsibility for notifying community members of meetings and events will move to the Secretary position, and the streamlined Newsletter Editor position will be an officer position; ii) adding a Website Manager position to the board; iii) clarifying the requirements for a quorum at GPNA meetings; and iv) clarifying that GPNA has two (not one) delegates on the board of its district coalition, Central Northeast Neighbors. In order to fulfill the requirements of Article VI, Section 4 of the GPNA bylaws for the amendment of bylaws, these changes will be on the agenda as a discussion item at our next Board meeting on January 10, 2023, and then put to a final vote at our annual meeting on April 11, 2023.

Proposed changes:
GPNA Bylaws rev 12.2022
Board Responsibilities rev 12.2022
