Who We Are


Near Southside, Inc.'s Board of Directors is a representative cross-section of the organization’s membership. Board members shape the organization’s priorities and work program through quarterly meetings and an annual strategic planning workshop led by Executive Committee members. Board members’ generous contributions over the years have been the driving force behind the remarkable change the Near Southside has seen since NSI’s creation in 1995.
