Green Hills Recreation Association (GHRA) Electing New Board Members
The Green Hills Recreation Association (GHRA) will be electing new board members to fill two-year terms on Wednesday, February 7 beginning at 5:15 p.m. at the Trenton High/Middle School Media Center. Those interested in fulfilling a board term should attend for more information, be nominated, and all candidates will be voted on for board election.
GHRA board members oversee the establishment and organization of recreational activities, create new and future activities, obtain, oversee, and organize volunteers, umpires/referees, and committee members, help with fundraising, oversee bylaws, regulations, purchasing, and other necessary administrative duties. All GHRA board members are volunteers and do not receive monetary compensation for service.
To be a board member, you must live in the Green Hills area, pass a background check, be in good standing with GHRA, and attend monthly meetings. GHRA is an active organization and participation is needed from all members of the board. Board terms are in increments of two years and several officer elections will be held. Persons can also volunteer for fundraising, or coaching committee, as a coach, referee/umpire, or as a sponsor. Individuals interested in volunteering are encouraged to attend the February meeting.

GHRA is organized by a volunteer board of directors and volunteer community members serving on committees, as coaches, and other service opportunities.
