About Us

Old North Saint Louis Restoration Group is guided by a Board of Directors who set the direction and policies of the organization, consistent with ONSLRG's mission to revitalize the physical and social dimensions of the Old North community.  Nine of these individuals are elected by ONSLRG's members to 2-year terms; five serve on the board as chairs of our standing committees; and 2 are appointed by the Board President.  The officers are selected by their fellow board members at the first board meeting after the Annual Meeting.
