Neighborhood Summit – UNOE General Meeting-August 2018


Join us for our August General Meeting on Thurs., Aug. 236:30pm at the C K Newsome Center, 100 Walnut St. This month we’ll be in the Rec Room–just follow the signs.

Our August General Meeting will take a different approach and agenda than usual months. During the UNOE Board Retreat earlier this year, members sought to pool information that had been gleaned from Neighborhood Associations throughout the year. Repeatedly, someone said, “We need to ask the Neighborhoods.” From that, we’re launching the Neighborhood Summit format for this month.

Plan now with the members of your Neighborhood Association to be a part of this special gathering as we together…
~ Discuss the successes & challenges of Neighborhoods
~ Encourage one another in the essential work we do
~ Identify action steps for continuing to preserve, enhance & promote the Evansville and area neighborhoods

Neighborhood Presidents, watch for more information in the mail and/or email to equip you for preparing with your members for this gathering.

Everyone interested, check out the first page of the August edition of the UNOE newsletter “Neighbor to Neighbor” for ways to prepare yourself too.

Together we can learn from one another, encourage each other and discover ideas and solutions for continuing the great impact that neighborhoods have on our community!

See you at the Summit in a few weeks!

The public is always welcome.

PREPARING FOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD SUMMIT
Download the Neighborhood Pulse form and the Questionnaire-UNOE’s Support of Neighborhood Associations.
Complete both through discussions with your members and bring/send them along with those from your Neighborhood who’ll attend the Summit
