New Year’s Resolution: A Healthier Neighborhood Association?
What better time than the New Year to ask: how “fit” is your neighborhood association? And if you were to ask that question, how would you answer it? NRC is working on a new tool that will help neighborhood associations give themselves a routine checkup.
We’re seeking feedback on an early draft of this new tool. If you are a leader or active member of a South Bend neighborhood association and would be willing to meet with NRC program staff in a small focus group to provide your thoughts, we would love to meet with you. More information.
