Quarterly Round Robin on Neighborhood Projects and Issues

The September Federation meeting is your opportunity to brief our citywide membership on projects and issues that your community council or organization is working on. Is there pending legislation you are following? Has your community council developed city budget priorities? Do you have issues with the work of any of the city’s departments or public officials? Do you have projects underway that other communities can learn from? The Round Robin is a great networking opportunity and a chance to generate support from the Federation and its member organizations for the important work you are doing.

If you have informational materials you would like distributed at the meeting, please email electronic copies or links to Jeannie Hale at
