What is the Montlake Community Club (MCC)?
The MCC is the collection of homes and businesses that have a street address in the Montlake neighborhood. All residents, property owners and business operators, 18 years of age or older are eligible to become members of the MCC.
Who is the MCC Board?
The MCC board consists of up to 13 volunteer MCC members including a President, Vice‐President, Treasurer, and Secretary. The officers serve with up to nine trustees. The board holds monthly meetings throughout most of the year on the first Tuesday evening of the Month at the Boyer Children’s Clinic.
What is the objective of the MCC and what are some of the committees?
The object of the MCC is to maintain and improve the Montlake neighborhood. Committees include transportation, Turkey Trot, fundraising, recruitment, yard sale, and communications. You can volunteer for a committee without serving as a trustee.

How can you participate?
The MCC board is a completely volunteer organization. We are always in search of new MCC members who want to help in any capacity, whether by serving on the board or volunteering for any of our key committees, initiatives or events. New board trustees are asked to select one or two of the projects they would like to work on. Typical involvement is a one-hour board meeting monthly and a few hours annually on a project.
If you would like to become a MCC trustee please send a note expressing your interest with a few sentences about yourself to Board@Montlake.net
Please send by April 30 for consideration for the upcoming Trustee election.
