Hilltop Alliance seeking board member candidates
November 7, 2017
The Hilltop Alliance is looking for interested applicants to fill an At-Large Board seat for a two-year term beginning January 2018.
The Alliance is specifically seeking candidates with the following experience/expertise: Law/Legal (attorney); Accounting/Finance (CPA); or, Real Estate (especially development finance). Interested applicants must be residents, business owners or stakeholders of South Pittsburgh’s Hilltop neighborhoods. Other board experience is a plus.
Board of Directors meetings are held monthly, approximately 10 per year, and every board member also selects a committee assignment. Board members must attend at least eight of the meetings per year.
All interested candidates are encouraged to apply. To apply, send a resume/bio and a personal statement about your interests via email to Aaron Sukenik at firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject header “Hilltop Alliance Board.” All submissions must be received by November 13, with the intention of scheduling follow-up interviews with the Alliance’s Governance Committee in late November or early December, referring the candidate to the full board in December.
The Hilltop Alliance is a coalition organization comprised of south Pittsburgh neighborhood-based member organizations: Allentown Community Development Corporation, Beltzhoover Civic Association, Carrick Community Council, Knoxville Community Council, Hilltop Economic Development Corporation, Mt. Oliver City/St. Clair Block Watch, Mt. Washington Community Development Corporation, and South Side Slopes Neighborhood Association. With a mission to “preserve and create assets in the Hilltop neighborhoods, through collaboration and coordination of resources,” the Hilltop Alliance has grown significantly in recent years, in both size and impact.
