10.Membership Task Force Report and Discussion – Rachel Colangelo

        NRCA is reaching out to new members of our North Ridge community as well as to longer-termed citizens who may be interested in civic participation but never had the time or opportunity. To do this we need to use those communications channels most familiar to younger generations, including Facebook, listservs, and blogs as well as printed newsletters and bulletins. The NRCA Membership Task Force, chaired by Rachel Colangelo, met April 21st in a lengthy session to explore novel ways to reach new members, including social media; creative events; topical and targeted activities; newcomers’ introductory and informational programs; and more effective communications of NRCA’s purposes, goals, objectives, programs, and processes.. Rachel will present some of the ideas generated by the Task Force for the Board’s consideration and input.
