2023 CRC Board Member Application
Community leaders are needed to serve as CRC Board Members

CapitolRiver Council (CRC) — District 17 — is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that engages residents, business owners, workers and property owners in discussions about local issues and projects that affect downtown Saint Paul and the Capitol area. CRC is one of the 17 district councils for the City of Saint Paul. We lead community-building activities and events to enable people to better understand issues and, in turn, provide meaningful input to elected officials who make decisions that affect their neighborhood. 

Board members are the volunteers who lead the organization. They are stewards of the organization’s mission and resources, and they set the overall priorities for community engagement and advocacy. Each year, 5 candidates are elected to serve 2-year terms on the CRC board of directors. 

The CRC Annual Meeting and Board Member Election is scheduled for June 27, at 5:30 p.m., at Osborn 370. Additional details will be posted on our website: http://www.capitolrivercouncil.org
