West Mt Airy Neighbors (WMAN) announced a new slate of Board members led by newly elected Board President, Steve Kendall.
Seven of the 12 board members are new, with Kendall replacing Alex Aberle as president and Susan Matyas replacing Rosemary Harley as Executive Vice President.
In a press release, the incoming leadership stated “Together, we are committed to a continued renewal of WMAN’s mission to preserve and enhance the quality of life of our community -- under conditions quite different from those our civic leaders faced when WMAN was formed in the 1950’s. We are excited to share highlights of recent and planned initiatives and activities, and welcome input and suggestions from the West Mt Airy community.”
Their priorities for the upcoming fiscal year include:
WMAN has been leading ongoing panel-led discussions (held virtually) on important and timely topics:
WMAN and EMAN teamed up on Breaking Bread, Building Bridges—an initiative led by Anuj Gupta and funded by the Knight Foundation— to return a sense of community in a time when neighbors have been unable to gather in person. Participants attended six virtual dinners, all ordering from the same restaurants, with thirty participants per dinner.
Diversity and communication across Mt. Airy has been a continuing theme for both neighborhood groups, as the real estate market fluctuated over the last two years and upcoming Census data might reflect a changing social and economic balance in the area.
