Bay View Neighborhood Association


About Us

HISTORY

The Bay View Neighborhood Association was created in 2004 by a group of residents passionate about Bay View.  Using a traditional grassroots approach, they sent a call out to all Bay Viewers to form a neighborhood association and give a voice to the residents of Bay View.

True to form, Bay View residents responded, got organized, and formalized the Bay View Neighborhood Association (BVNA).  In 2005, the organization was granted 501(c)(3) charitable organization status by the IRS.

LEADERSHIP AND VOLUNTEERISM

Our all-volunteer, membership organization is run by a Board of Directors which includes officers, committee chairs, committee members, district representatives and at-large board members.

The BVNA funds a variety of initiatives with membership dues, corporate sponsorships and fundraising events.  We also seek out grant opportunities as they become available. 

General membership meetings are held quarterly, with an annual meeting held in February.
