The BVNA operates within a series of committees, each of which holds a chairperson and a group of volunteers. Take a look at what each committee is responsible for as we work hard to make Bay View an even better place. We encourage you to volunteer on one or more committees. Feel free to contact us for more information about how you can participate and get involved.
Communications members help advertise BVNA events and projects and encourage community participation and support. They may be called on to interact with media outlets and publications (The Bay View Compass, Shepherd Express, WMSE, etc.), resident groups, other partnering community organizations, churches, and supporting businesses in promoting BVNA activities.
