Community Leadership

19NORTH, in addition to a neighborhood designation, holds a 501c3 status and is governed by a Board of Directors. 

These leaders in our community volunteer their time and energy to ensure that programs and initiatives that are in line with our neighborhood mission continue to take place. 

The board is also responsible for the oversight and facilitation of all donations made to the community effort.
