Board Meetings

Monthly board meetings are held the first Tuesday of each month from 7-9 PM at the Kenwood Recreation Center. We encourage residents to attend to learn more about what's happening in Lowry Hill and the surrounding neighborhood. The board does not meet in July and August.

Janet Hallaway

I feel much more connected to people in the neighborhood since I've served on the board. One of the most rewarding things has been getting to know a whole new group of people and now counting those people as good friends.

–Janet Hallaway, former LHNA President


Volunteer or Run for a Seat on the Board

LHNA has an active group of 15 board members.  Board members are volunteers who serve a 2-year term. Elections are held at the Annual Meeting in May/June. Residents can also volunteer to help on a committee without running for a board seat.
