The Governing Board of the Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council consists of 17 members. All Board members are “at large” members (there are no special qualifications for specific seats on the Board). Board members must be 18 years old or older on the day of the selection (18 May 2013), and must be a stakeholder in the Coastal San Pedro neighborhood. “A stakeholder is defined as any individual who lives, works, or owns property in the Neighborhood Council area. In addition, stakeholder status is conferred on those who declare a stake in the neighborhood and affirm the factual basis for it.” [CSPNC Bylaws].

The term of Board Members is for one year commencing July 1 and ending June 30 of the following year. NOTE: there is a pending amendment to the Bylaws of CSPNC which would initiate two-year staggered terms for Board members. If that change to the Bylaws comes into effect prior to the selection process, some election winners will begin two year terms upon taking their seats. The results of that amendment process will be known prior to the selection on 10 May.

Rules and responsibilities of Board Members (as well as a map of the CSPNC region) are in the Coastal San Pedro Bylaws.

The Selection Committee for CSPNC for 2014 is:
Dean Pentcheff (Chair) pentcheff@gmail.com
Kristina Smith ksmith@klct.com
