Bylaws

Here are the current Sunnyside Neighborhood Association Bylaws.

In August, 2015 the SNA board created a Bylaws Committee to review and update our bylaws and bring them into better alignment and compliance with the Office of Neighborhood Involvement standards. The bylaws committee members were Lorraine Henriques, Tony Jordan, and Katy Asher. The committee met several times and presented the SNA board with the proposed bylaws on January 12, 2017.

The SNA board voted to present the proposed draft of the bylaws to the SNA membership for a period of review and comment.

The board will accept comments on the bylaws until noon on March 1st, 2017.  Comments can be sent by email to board@sunnysideneighborhood.com or via postal mail to:

Sunnyside Neighborhood Association
C/O SE Uplift
3534 SE Main St
Portland, OR 97214

Comments will be taken in person at an Open House event to be held on the evening of February 13th, 2017.  Location and time will be announced as soon as possible.

After the comment period closes. SNA Board Members will review them and propose amendments to the bylaws.  The board will consider and vote on amendments at the March 9, 2017 SNA Board Meeting.

Following the consideration and adoption of amendments, the board will submit the final proposed bylaws for a vote of the SNA Membership. A ratification vote is expected to take place at a Special Meeting of the General Membership to take place in April 2017. If ratified, the new bylaws will go into effect in June 2017.
