Leadership Minutes – August 2013
Last Month’s Community Presentations – Rise Sister Rise, Comprehensive Neighborhood Initiative
A discussion was held on how this information could be used. Members felt that it was good information for their individual agencies and several had ideas. UAV served as the vehicle for bringing the information to the membership.
Neighborhoods Council – Completing their survey of neighborhood assets. Checking on programs (what, when, where, how much, etc.) which will be shared at the All Council Meeting.
Community Awareness Council – Working on a “Be the Hope” mailing to faith based organizations, Announced that banners featuring the 12 messages were ready to loan. Call Sheila Hood to reserve the banner.
