‘ORGANIZING & OUTREACH’
Tips for organizing a group and getting community support
October 24, 2007
[FERNDALE] – Do you have a project you need help with? Want to include your friends and neighbors in a community activity? Think your group could be better organized? Well, it’s never the wrong time to plan and organize – and the winter is the perfect time to re-group, re-organize and develop outreach strategies for the coming year.
Sullivan Renaissance will hold a seminar entitled “Organizing & Outreach” on Wednesday, November 7 at 7:00 p.m. at the CVI Building in Ferndale. The program will include helpful tips for organizing a group, using volunteers, effective outreach strategies, and involving one’s municipality.
The seminar will be led by Helen Budrock, a planner with over 15 years of experience in land use planning, Main Street revitalization and community organizing. She has a master’s degree in urban planning from New York University and is employed by Sullivan Renaissance as a community planner, providing technical assistance to communities and community groups.
“Organizing & Outreach” is primarily aimed toward Sullivan Renaissance groups and projects, but everyone is welcome to attend. Individuals and groups interested in learning more about Sullivan Renaissance are also invited. Refreshments will be available. Please RSVP by November 5.
Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation. Youth participation is supported in part with grants from the Louis R. Cappelli Foundation, and Bank of America Charitable Foundation. Additional funding has been secured by NYS Senator John J. Bonacic and Assemblywoman Aileen M. Gunther.
