WHAT IS AN SSCO BOARD MEETING?
The all-volunteer Board of Directors is charged with leading the work of the Stevens Square Community Organization through oversight of its policies, finances, and strategic direction. The purpose of this meeting is to conduct the business of the SSCO Board, which makes its decisions based upon the work of the committees. The Executive Director and committee chairs will make their reports to the Board.
All are welcome! Only Board members can vote on motions, but motions may be opened to the floor for discussion.

The agenda is posted below.
