* An At-Large Representative must  live, work, own a business, go to school, worship, or participate in a community organization that has continuously maintained a physical street address within UNNC’s boundaries for at least a year —  and that organization must perform ongoing activities that benefit our UNNC neighbors and neighborhoods. A community organization can include, but is not limited to, educational, non-profit and/or religious organizations, parks, recreation areas, public safety organizations, environmental organizations, medical/health organizations, libraries, religious institutions, service organizations, or other at large entities.

* Un representante independiente debe vivir, trabajar, ser propietario de un negocio, asistir a una escuela, ser feligrés, o participar en una organización comunitaria que haya mantenido una dirección física dentro de los limítes del UNNC mínimamente por un año–y esa organización debe conducir regularmente actividades que beneficien a nuestros vecinos del UNNC y sus vecindades. Una organización comunitaria puede incluir, pero no se limita, a organizaciones educativas, sin fines de lucro y/o religiosas, parques, áreas recreativas, organizaciones de seguridad pública, organizaciones ambientales, organizaciones médicas/de la salud, bibliotecas, instituciones religiosas, organizaciones de servicio, u otras entidades independientes.
