Opportunities: West Harlem Development Corporation Seeks Board Members

In 2009 the West Harlem Local Development Corporation (WHLDC) signed an historic Community Benefits Agreement (CBA) with Columbia University to provide quality of life benefits to the West Harlem community. WHLDC is in the process of petitioning to transfer all of its assets, including its right to receive funds under the CBA, to the West Harlem Development Corporation (WHDC) and thereafter to dissolve WHLDC.  The West Harlem Development Corporation is recruiting new members to join its Board of Directors.
