Woodpark Community Association
The Woodpark Community Association is governed by twelve board members operating within the bylaws (click to see bylaws) for the organization. There are four named table officers and eight general board members. Below are the current table officers and board members.
Additionally, there are four sub-committees each with their own focus. These sub-committees are chaired by a board member and recruit both other board members and members of the Woodpark community to carry out their mandates. These sub-committees are guided by terms of reference. The details for the sub-committees can be found below.
