Kessler Neighbors United (KNU) is a fully registered Texas non-profit corporation, under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code serving the needs and interests of our Kessler Park residents. We are governed by a non-paid executive committee comprised of four officers that are elected by a voting resident body at the annual meeting held each year. The president, with the consent of the other officers, appoints chairs of various committees and special projects. These committees and our many dedicated volunteers serve as the true “working arm” of the organization. Dues and other contributions are strictly elective, and are essential to funding the activities, services, and maintenance of our neighborhood.
