As a neighbourhood organization, SHPOA aims to support the livability of Shaughnessy by promoting community spirit and cooperative assistance among the residents, preserving and protecting the historical single-family character of our neighbourhood and protecting the quality of life. As issues arise that affect these qualities, SHPOA strives to provide information to residents and, if necessary, be an advocate on their behalf. We encourage all Shaughnessy residents to join SHPOA.
The role of the Board of Directors is comparable to any not-for-profit organization. It is the responsibility of the Board of Directors to support the objectives and act as the decision-making arm of the organization. It is the role of the Directors to plan for the organization to renew itself and to meet its stated objectives. The Directors must make provision for adequate resources to run the organization, relating to fundraising, budgeting and an effective committee system carrying on the operational aspect of the organization's activities.
