As we continue to highlight one of the AWCC’s standing committees each month to encourage greater participation in the organization, this month we feature the Membership Committee.
According to AWCC’s Bylaws:

“The Membership Committee shall be responsible for adding new members to the roll and for maintaining present membership. It is also responsible for maintaining contact with all residents of Allegheny West, both members and non-members of Civic Council, to keep them informed of neighborhood and Council activities.”

In addition to the duties outlined in the bylaws, the Membership Committee is better-known for its role as the neighborhood social committee, which brings you such events as the Memorial Day, July 4th and Labor Day block parties, the monthly neighborhood mixers, the weekly Allegheny West bowling night during the winter months and the weekly bocce nights during the summer months. Committee meetings are held on an as-needed basis, usually prior to major neighborhood events. If social events and party planning are your forte, this is the committee for you.

The current chair of the Membership Committee is Timothy Zinn, a resident of the 900 block of Western Avenue. Please contact Tim at (412) 260-7389 or for additional information or to volunteer for our upcoming events.

As a reminder, Allegheny Bowling Night is every Wednesday until the end of April, beginning at 7:00 pm at the Allegheny Elks Lodge, 400 Cedar Avenue. The next monthly mixer will be at Leo. a public house, at 1207 Allegheny Avenue on Saturday, March 14th, beginning at 6:30 pm.
