Hello Selene, from my understanding, having a criminal background should not prevent you from being eligible to run for a NC board seat.

If the candidate filing period has not opened, you will need to review their bylaws.

S Hersk
02:36:15
if one is running for the business post - do i only target business owners?
Ann-Marie Holman
02:39:59
S Hersk - it is likely that more types of stakeholders than that can vote for you, but that is why it is important to look up who can vote for you according to the rules of the Neighborhood Council you are running for. The follow up material shared after this session will include details on how to check who can vote for you, but do not hesitate to use the contact info in the packet to ask for more help, as well
S Hersk
02:40:52
Thank you, Ann-Marie. :)

Roberts Rules are one type of rulebook for parliamentary procedure, so it is a guide to conducting a meeting of a board or committee, and establishes rules for how and when people speak or interact
