*Area Representative is a board position created to ensure equal representation for each part of the Woodstock neighborhood. The neighborhood is divided into five geographic sections and Area Representatives are designated to represent the views and interests of their respective areas on neighborhood association issues and to attend and vote at board meetings. Area reps often help with general WNA projects of their choosing and may also take the lead on community-building activities specific to their area, such as a summer block party, or local organizing around crime prevention or emergency preparedness.

WANTED: Area Representative for Area 1, the section bordered by Holgate and Steele (north and south) and 52nd & Cesar Chavez (east and west).
