Annette Glanckopf: Veteran organizer serves on 19 boards, unites residents and neighborhoods

by Linda Taaffe

Annette Glanckopf has spent decades bringing together neighbors and neighborhoods throughout Palo Alto. As chairperson of the Midtown Residents Association, she was instrumental in restoring Scott Meadows in Greer Park, installing five public art projects in the neighborhood and reviving the Midtown Shopping District by pushing for ground-floor retail. Glanckopf co-founded Palo Alto Neighborhoods (PAN), a networking organization that connects neighbors and neighborhoods. She also co-founded the Emergency Services Volunteer (EVS) organization and the nonprofit support group Pacific Stroke Awareness. She has served on more than 19 boards, including the Rotary Club of Palo Alto, The Woman's Club of Palo Alto, Palo Alto Players, Leadership Palo Alto, as well as on the city's Comprehensive Plan and the Future of Residential Housing task forces. She received a Community Champion Award from the 13th Senate District, and the city of Palo Alto recognized her in a 2017 proclamation.
