The SOSNA Board of Directors is a working volunteer Board that establishes the policies and helps implement the programs and activities of the organization. The SOSNA board is an elected volunteer body, made up of 15 people from the neighborhood. Each board member serves a 3-year term and can only serve 2 consecutive terms, for a total of 6 years.

This year we will have six (6) open positions to fill on the Board.


The South of South Neighborhood Association (SOSNA) is a neighborhood civic association established to improve the quality of life and serve as a resource for residents and businesses by actively encouraging and promoting neighborhood activities and civic involvement in the area bounded by the south side of South Street to the north side of Washington Avenue and the west side of Broad Street to the Schuylkill River.

SOSNA is committed to creating programs and initiatives that cultivate a diverse and inclusive neighborhood. We will continue to embrace the rich history of our neighborhood, build a Board that represents the community and aspire to create an environment that empowers its residents by providing access to resources, clean and green spaces, equitable development, safer streets, and community support, including those of all races, ages, gender identities, LGBTQAI+ identities, socioeconomic statuses, varying abilities, ethnicities, perspectives and experiences. We will achieve this mission through intentional listening, story sharing and displaying empathy while purposefully centering voices of historically excluded individuals and communities.
