2021 Annual Membership Meeting


Register here today!

Dear Bickerdike Member:


Community Inspired Development, these are three words that encapsulate the work that we have been doing for close to 55 years. Work that began when a group of concerned individuals and organizations joined forces to fight widespread housing deterioration, abandonment, and arson in the near northwest side, founding Bickerdike Redevelopment Corporation to redevelop these neighborhoods into thriving communities; work that continues to this day.

Bickerdike members play an important part in the work that we do. We thank you for your continued membership and share with you that it’s time again for Bickerdike’s Annual Membership Meeting, which will be held on Zoom. You will be receiving a formal invitation with d

etails soon, but in the meantime please save the morning of Saturday, December 4, 2021, for this important event!

During the meeting, you'll learn more about, how with your commitment our work has continued, even in the face of the ongoing global pandemic, which has affected the lives of so many. We have two projects that will be completed in 2021: The rehab of Victory Apartments Preservation and the construction of Emmett Street Apartments. As a testament to the need for our work, almost 700 individuals picked up an application during the Emmett Street Apartments waitlist opening.

So we know that we are not done, and we need your continued commitment. 

Our membership is an important part of our mission and structure and as a member, you have the opportunity to exercise your voice heard again at our Annual Meeting by participating in the election of our Board of Directors. You can nominate any eligible Class A or C member, including yourself, for the Board of Directors, just complete the enclosed nomination form and return it to the address above. The election will take place during our December meeting.

The deadline for returning the completed form is Wednesday, October 20, 2021. You can find the Nomination Form here.

Again, we hope you'll join us via Zoom on Saturday, December 4, 2021, to learn more and have a voice in our plans for the future.
