Staff & Board

Neighborhood Alliance is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization and as such we are governed by a board of directors.

The board consists of volunteers who are interested in creating stronger neighborhoods throughout Central Oklahoma. Some board members are active in their own associations while others have talents in a specific arena such as law, public relations or fundraising. Board meetings are held the fourth Wednesday of each month, 5:30 p.m. in our office. In compliance with the Open Meetings Act all board meetings are open to the general public and agendas are posted in our location 24 hours in advance of each meeting.

Currently Neighborhood Alliance employs four full time staff, the Executive Director, Programs Director and two Community Organizers. We also enjoy the talents of two part time individuals. We are grateful for the numerous talented people who volunteer to assist us at workshops and events.

Funding & Staffing

Neighborhood Alliance is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization with an annual budget close to $300,000.  Our generous  donors, endowments and foundations help us reach our goal each year. We also work cooperatively with the City of Oklahoma City to provide a conduit for neighborhoods and citizens to partner with city staff in affecting positive changes in their areas. Like the associations we assist, we rely on the involvement and participation of the numerous volunteers who directly support our activities, the dedicated members of our Board of Directors as well as the commitment and drive of our staff.
