Outreach
Neal Roden was born and educated on the East Coast where he began his early career teaching in independent schools. He moved to Los Angeles in the late ‘80s and has been teaching at The Buckley School in Sherman Oaks since 1989. His interest in community involvement was piqued during the movement for Valley secession, and he was elected to the very first Board of the Sherman Oaks Neighborhood Council where he has served continuously. He is currently the longest serving Board Member and the only original member still on the Sherman Oaks Neighborhood Council.

Neal loves Sherman Oaks. He does most of his shopping and dining out in the local establishments and feels that Sherman Oaks is a great place to live. He believes in a balance between businesses and residences in the community, while understanding that monitored growth and change are very important to maintaining the vibrancy and desirability of the Sherman Oaks area. He has served on the Government Affairs Committee, the Education Committee, the Rules and Elections Committee, and is currently on the Outreach Committee. He most enjoys interacting with the public during community events. Being a part of SONC is important to him, and he also finds it very rewarding.
