WPNA Committees

Part of what makes Winnona Park great is active involvement by individuals in our neighborhood association committees. We need your help to maintain our great community and our committees are always in need of volunteers. Please consider becoming a member of one of our committees. Committee meetings are usually announced via our communication outlets.


Julie Brody and Amanda Schroeder, Co-Chairs

The purpose of the Communications Committee is to work together with the WPNA Board to inform, engage, and educate residents regarding issues important to their understanding of, and participation in, the neighborhood while promoting and maintaining positive lines of communication with Winnona Park residents.

They are responsible for developing, updating and monitoring the WPNA’s communications policies, organizational website, social networking accounts, as well as updating and promoting WPNA activities, meetings, social events, news and recommending new ways for the WPNA to communicate with its members.

They keep the neighborhood informed via various communication outlets.
