All Westsiders are invited. The event will start at 7 p.m. at the Westside Community Center, 1628 W. Bijou St.

The following presentations are scheduled:
The election will fill five positions on the nine-member OWN board. Positions open are Areas 1, 2, 3 and 6 and At-Large 1. All of these have three-year terms except Area 2, which is for two years; and Area 3, for one year.
Three of the OWN seats are at-large, and six serve specific geographic areas of the NSA. Candidates and voters must be Westside NSA residents or must own residential property there.
