Board of Directors

Directors volunteer their time and resources for meetings and events, and pledge to a two year term.

Get to know our Officers, Directors and Staff.  We asked them to tell us about themselves:

  • How many years have you lived in Wynnewood?
  • How many years have you been a WCA member?
  • Causes you’re most passionate about as a board member: (Land Use, Education, Safety, Beautification, Other. If “Other,” please explain)
  • Anything else you’d like to share in your bio about yourself, family, why you’re part of the WCA?

  • Member of WCA for 15 years

“For 80 years the Wynnewood Civic Association has been a passionate and dedicated advocate and watchdog for the quality of life in our community. I believe it is more important than ever to participate in the WCA’s efforts to continue to carry out that mission.”

Teri Simon, 1st Vice President

Joel Hirsh, Treasurer

Joel Hirsh

  • Has lived in Wynnewood 24 years
  • Member of WCA for 22 years
  • Causes: Land Use, Beautification, Safety
  • “Wynnewood is a wonderful place to live and raise children thanks to good schools, a pleasant suburban environment and proximity to Philadelphia and all its cultural offerings. I joined the WCA and ultimately the Board in order to help support and maintain the neighborhood that I chose 24 years ago. ”

Perry Hamilton, Secretary

Perry Hamilton

  • Has lived in Wynnewood 36 years
  • Member of WCA for 27 years
  • Causes: Land Use. “Thought it seems mundane, maintaining the railroad station is very important.  It is the architectural focus of our neighborhood.  Our neighborhood is unique in that there are practically no “tear downs and rebuilds”.  Loosing this original railroad station would be a blow to that aspect of living here.”
  • “Because Wynnewood was built with high quality and has remained exceptionally well preserved, it is vulnerable to business that see opportunity to make a fast, easy buck at the expense of this neighborhood’s charm. Though I am ‘pro business’, I resist attempts by businesses to make a fast, easy buck at the expense of the unique charm of our neighborhood”
