If you decide to serve, this is a chance to help determine what programs UNNC may engage in, to have a vote on land use and other city issues you may be interested in, and to help decide what initiatives UNNC may fund. And perhaps more importantly, to help give back to our community.
The UNNC Executive Committee will begin interviewing Candidates to fill these vacancies at its meeting on Tuesday, October 19, beginning at 7:00 p.m. A candidate must be present (virtually, on Zoom) to be interviewed. This is a public meeting.
