Join Our Board!

SEOPCO is actively looking to fill 3 open positions on our board. They are “at large” positions which would give the board a total of ten active members. The board meets monthly on the first Tuesday from 7:30 – 9 PM.

Serving on our board, you can work on community projects without making a significant time commitment. In addition to attending our 90-minute monthly meeting, we estimate that members spend perhaps 1 – 2 additional hours during the school year and up to 5 hours in the summer months preparing for our big annual event, Barrie Fest.

In addition to Barrie Fest, we organize a variety of other neighborhood activities. We partner with the Irving School PTO & the Park District to hold Movie Night in Barrie Park. In local election years, we sponsor public candidate forums for Village and District 97 and 200 School Board positions. We act as an advocate for our neighborhood to Village government and we are always looking for new ways to raise the profile of South East Oak Park.

A list of board members can be found here, along with our mission statement and cultural beliefs. On behalf of the SEOPCO Board we welcome your interest to join us in continuing our efforts to make South East Oak Park a great place to live.

If you are interested in joining, please reply to SEOPCO via our email address, and provide your contact information with a brief bio and interest. We will reply to you.

Enjoy the rest of summer and our great neighborhood.

Yours truly,

Laura Crawford and Allan Flynn
