Get Involved in Events or Community Development in Cleveland

Community Conversations
Get involved in a committee and help make events happen!

Committees are a great way to take an active role in your neighborhood and make sure the things we are doing are reflective of your interest and priorities. Two committee meetings coming up that you might want to get involved in our Events and Community Development.

Tonight at 6:30pm at the CNA Office our Events Committee will be debriefing our very successful Live on the Drive summer concert series. We’ll be discussing plans for the upcoming Annual Party and we’ll prepare for the Northside Housing Fair which we’ll be relaunching in March of 2016. Join us for a productive one hour gathering to get involved in making these great events happen.

On Monday, Sept 14th at 6:30pm you can join the Community Development Committee as it discusses the housing fair, our home repair loan program, Community Solar and the launch of a resident-led “Curb Appeal Award” (more details below)

Great opportunities to connect with your neighbors and get involved in your committee. Can’t come out this week but want to get email updates for those committees so you can stay connected in the future? Take two seconds and fill out our Connection form and we’ll add you to the update lists!
