Board and VOlunteering

We are all the beneficiaries of those who gave their time and talent to this neighborhood before us. We hope you will volunteer and contribute to the well-being of our community. There are many ways to do so. You can join the ECA Board or volunteer for a single event or need by reaching out to the person on the Board who is leading that event. You can also find the minutes from our meetings, our bylaws and other related materials here. If you want access to links or minutes that are not available below, please email us and we will help you.


Got more questions? We figured. We get them all the time! Check out our FAQs first to see whether we can help and, if you still have questions, reach out to our communications team
