What is the Powderhorn Annual Community Gathering?

Our annual community gathering brings together the people of Powderhorn to elect members to the Board of Directors, and learn more about the work of PPNA in the previous year.  This year we’ll be reporting on 2021.

Who can attend?

How does early and absentee voting work?

As an effort to increase member participation in our Board election, PPNA instituted Early and Absentee Voting in 2017.  Board nominees are posted on our website prior to the Annual Gathering with an electronic form to vote.  You can update your vote at the Annual Gathering if you're able to make it.  Read a full F.A.Q. in by clicking the links in English, Spanish and Somali.

Will there be nominations from the floor?

Yes, there will be a call for nominations from the floor.  When the call opens you can announce that you would like to run from the floor and will be added to the ballot.

I don’t have a computer or internet connection.  How can I participate?

Contact us at info@ppna.org and we will assist you in obtaining a computer and low-cost internet service if you meet the income requirements.  

Will there be a public comment period?
