Get Involved!

volunteer-iconThe Piccadilly Area Neighbourhood Association (PANA) is looking to fill a few positions on the exec.  The executive is made of up 6 – 12 neighbours from Piccadilly Area who meet 8 to 10 times between January and November to plan social events for our community, such as the Clean & Green event, Porch Concert and so on.

The group also delves into specific local issues including City planning matters and developments such as the Adelaide Street CP underpass project, and others that come up in the community.

Becoming involved is a great way to give back, meet new people, and even hone new skills like member relations and event planning. Meetings are every 4-6 weeks and are kept to an hour to an hour-and-a-half, depending on the agenda.

Email join@piccadillyarea.ca if you are interested and include a little about yourself! Each notice of interest will be reviewed by the current exec members. We commit to being transparent throughout the process!
