About WGNA

Our Mission

The Willow Glen Neighborhood Association (WGNA) is a grassroots community organization dedicated to improving the quality of life in our neighborhood of San José, CA. WGNA is a non-profit 501(c)(4) organization established in 1973.

You can read more about the workings of WGNA in our Bylaws and Policies.

If you are a resident of Willow Glen, please get involved!


The Willow Glen Neighborhood Association Board of Directors meets monthly to hear concerns or announcements from our membership, to invite guest speakers on the address of topics that are important to the community, as well as to set our calendar, plan events, and monitor our financial status.  Speakers often include persons from the city and county departments, local community groups, and Willow Glen residents.  Your participation is both welcome and encouraged.  

The WGNA Annual Meeting & Election, corresponding with the term year for the new Board of Directors, occurs in the month of May.  In this meeting, the membership elects its officers, board members, and nominating committee.  

There's typically a break and no meetings for the months of December and August.  In December we co-host the Holiday Lights Tour.  In August, we host National Night Out.

See our Meetings page for the full schedule of public meetings, as well as agendas, minutes, and presentations from board meetings.  Additional information can also be found at the News (blog) page.


Many of WGNA's past and present board members have first become involved because of their own personal passion for volunteerism. If you have a cause you'd like to fight for, whether it be preserving the environment, funding our schools, keeping our neighborhood clean, or advocating for city services, WGNA needs your opinions in order to form a collective voice that accurately represents the neighborhood that we love and care for so much.

Visit the volunteer page and sign up to help in some of our more common causes, or you can let us know what you're most passionate about and we'll let you know when something might come up. The News page also includes volunteer opportunities with some great organizations that WGNA works with on a regular basis, or please email us, if not ask one of the board members at our next board meeting.
