About CNIA

Where and when does CNIA meet?

Cabbagetown Neighborhood Improvement Association (CNIA) meets regularly on the second Tuesday of each month at 7 pm at the Cabbagetown Community Center, 177 Estoria, Atlanta, GA 30312.

Agendas are posted in advance of each meeting in the monthly Cabbagetown Newsletter and elsewhere on this website.

Minutes and Treasurer’s Reports of each meeting can be found elsewhere on this website.

Who can be a member of CNIA?

All residents and businesses of Cabbagetown are considered members of CNIA, but a membership form shall be required and filed in advance of voting at any meeting.

In order to be a member, a single page Membership Application form should be filled out and submitted. Dues are no longer required.  The form can be found below, or obtained at the regular monthly meetings.  However, the by-laws provide that the form must be submitted and approved at least one day before voting privileges are granted.

Membership is granted on an annual basis and all memberships expire by the annual meeting in March each year.  You may renew your membership at or before the annual meeting with no loss in voting privileges.

For further information about membership, please see our membership by-laws.

Membership Form:  Download and submit to the Vice-President Jacqueline Edwards  (, drop in the CNIA mailbox at the Community Center (177 Estoria Street) or bring to a meeting.  Your submission must be approved at least one business day before a CNIA meeting in order to vote.

I’d like to help with CNIA leadership. How do I apply?

Elections are held in March of each year.  Nominations may be made at the February meeting or from the floor at the March meeting.

Where can I learn more about CNIA?

You can find more information by reading the Cabbagetown Neighborhood Improvement Association membership by-laws. The membership by-laws were revised and adopted in 2013.
