Description of EPNI Board

The Elliot Park Neighborhood, Inc. (EPNI) is a nonprofit neighborhood organization in the southeast corner of downtown Minneapolis. EPNI focuses on addressing community issues, improving safety, and influencing development.

The EPNI Board of Directors sets priorities and the budget for the organization, while the Executive Director and staff implement programs. The volunteer Board is made up of residents (up to 10) and community organization Directors (up to 6) with a total membership of up to 15 Directors. Terms are 3 years long, elected at the September meeting. Vacant seats may also be filled by interested applicants.

Meetings are held the third Monday of the month, 6-7:30pm in a hybrid setting: in person at the Elliot Park Rec Center, and on Zoom. These meetings follow Robert’s Rules of Order with motions and votes to approve policies. The aim of the Board is to make meetings accessible to all and explain all procedures for guests or new members.

The work of the Board often occurs through committees. As of April 2024, the committees are Land Use & Transportation, Neighborhood Vitality, and Executive. The current joint meeting schedule for the Land Use & Transportation and Neighborhood Vitality committees is the 2nd Wednesday of the month, from 6:30-8:00pm at the Elliot Park Rec Center.  The Executive Committee meeting schedule will be confirmed after the election of new Directors, but will also typically meet monthly. Directors are asked to be part of at least one committee.
