Membership

Becoming a member of the community league has many benefits, including discounts on hall rental, educational programs and city-wide recreation facilities (more membership benefits). The stronger our membership base is, the more we get involved, the more volunteers we can recruit, the more great programs and activities we can host. For specific questions about membership email our membership director.

Family $25
Single Parent Family $20
Senior $10  
Student $10

Get involved

The McKernan Community is a volunteer-run organization. We welcome everyone who has a contribution to make. Here are some of the ways you could get involved:

  • help out at one of our upcoming events (like these)!

  • bring your expertise or enthusiasm to one of our current initiatives

  • contribute your views to our ongoing issues

  • bring a whole new idea to us

 

Join the McKernan board

Are you interested in getting more involved with our community? We will be looking for some new board/executive members at our April AGM!

General board responsibilities are to:

  • attend a monthly board meeting (2nd Monday of the month)

  • help oversee the current activities and responsibilities of the league (hall operation, budget, events)

  • take on projects based on your own interests and what needs to be done (ideas we'd love to pursue include increasing student involvement, community garden, artwork in the community, sustainability initiatives - or maybe you have a great idea of your own)

Positions up for election in April are: president and vice-president (1 year term); secretary and treasurer (2-year terms); 2 directors-at-large (2 year terms).
Not quite ready for a board position? There are still lots of places you can help out. If you're interested and want to know more, contact president Phil Kloc at philipgkloc@gmail.com.

Specific roles

We are always looking for people to participate in our regular work:

  • Development committee - reviews proposals for new housing developments to ensure they meet community standards and will contribute to making this a viable and vibrant neighbourhood

  • Rink maintenance - keeping our rink in good shape

  • Pocket Park maintenance - beautify our corner of Edmonton

  • Programs - help decide what programs we will offer for young and old in the community

  • School liaison - build links between McKernan School and the community

  • City liaison – work with other leagues, the City of Edmonton and other groups on issues such as transportation or crime prevention

 

New projects

As well, here are some new projects we would like to work on. Can you help with any of these?

  • organize league records for new hall

  • maintaining social media (Facebook, Web, photos)

  • collecting archive materials

  • liaise with community businesses to make our commercial strip more pedestrian-friendly

  • set up community garden
