If you live (homeowners and renters), own or manage a business within the Harrison boundaries you can nominate yourself (most common); or any HNA member can nominate a resident as an applicant for the Board at the next meeting of the Board on February 20, 2017.

Dave Colling
Executive Director -

With over 20 years’ experience working with government agencies, political and nonprofit organizations, and inside the marketing communications industry, Dave Colling brings a community-focused approach to his work. Growing up in an economically challenged area of Detroit, MI, he learned first-hand the many benefits and challenges of building strong, inclusive communities.

 Dave’s passion for community building started early and he took that passion into the world of politics, first as a volunteer and eventually as a highly sought after political strategist. Success managing Congressman Keith Ellison’s first campaign through the 2006 primary and general elections reinforced his belief that diversity is strength and the key to thriving neighborhoods and communities. Dave’s work with grassroots organizations has continued including his last position with the Nokomis East Neighborhood Association as their Program and Communications Manager. He is also a graduate student at Hamline University in the Masters of Nonprofit Management program.
