Rose Moller-Jacobs

Recording Secretary

Joe Mazzola

Corresponding Secretary



The purpose of Quadrant Directors is to try to get to know residents and businesses in your respective quadrant. Getting to know our neighbors helps to provide a voice for all of Tower Grove South residents. We hope to achieve this by conducting at least one annual meet & greet per quadrant per year. Quadrant Directors are asked to help organize and participate with the TGS Board in these meet & greets. In addition, Quadrant DIrectors, like all Board members, will assist with fundraising and other Board-related efforts as needed/capable.


Individually, each Director has responsibilities significantly greater than those of other members of TGSNA. Each Director is expected to make a commitment of time and effort to the activities of the organization, including but not limited to, financial support of the organization within the means of each Director, participation in fundraising efforts, participation on committees, attendance at Board meetings, and attendance at TGSNA events and functions.
