  • Newsletter design and wording

  • Social media and other publicity – radio, newspaper, posters on bulletin boards

  • Fundraising (events, grants, online donations, other)

  • Serving as the board liaison to one or more committees working on community issues


We are also looking to have a board members  be a  liaison to the following sector:​​


The sectors mentioned with each board member are those areas of special interest to the board member. The board member does not represent these sectors. Rather, the purpose is to have the board member connect with these sectors to understand their issues and needs and encourage participation in the Community Council meetings. This will result in greater visibility and understanding of community issues specific to each sector, and action on those issues.
