We’re off to a great start in 2013!  Our attendance at our monthly board meeting is growing!  I’m really excited about our initiatives for the year.   Here’s a snapshot of just a few of them:

  • We adopted a theme for this year which is : MEMBERSHIP INVOLVES YOU!  Our goal is to have actively involved members, enthusiastically engaged in things they are passionate about.  Along those lines, we are trying to make it easier for anyone who so desires, to get involved with The CHCC.
  • We instituted a new Leadership Training System, designed to enable uniform templates to be used for all committees and task force position.  This will enable us to capture the work flow of each committee, and build out our written Procedures Manual with job descriptions.   The vast majority of the Board has now completed this training.
  • We reached out to all Past Presidents of the CHCC, with a twofold purpose:  First, to honor them for their past service and volunteer efforts.  Second, to let them know what we have going on, and to invite their participation in any way they feel so inclined.
  • We’ve started a new Communications Committee, under the leadership of Kenny Wooton. This committee has already begun to identify and improve all areas of communication, to our members and to the public.
  • We’ve initiated a new Institutional Representative Liaison,  C.J.Parrish, who is going to help increase the membership and involvement of many fine institutions and business organizations we have in the Crescent Hill area.
  • Plans are underway for our 4th of July Festival,  set for Thursday, July 4th and Friday, July 5th.  Each day will run from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM  and will feature Artists Exhibits, Live Music, Antique Car Parade, Childrens Games, Pet Show and more.  This is sure to be two great days of family fun for the neighborhood.  It is also our largest volunteer effort and hopefully our biggest fundraiser of the year!  It takes over 200 volunteers for this, so come help out a little for a great cause.
  • We continue to push resources and expand our web presence,  with the intention of becoming more transparent, and easier for anyone who so desire to get involved with us.

Membership does INVOVE you!   We have so many great committees and activities to get involved with.  Take a look at the committee pages and activities on this website.   Membership involves YOU!   We would love to have you get involved with us.  The Crescent Hill Community Council:  Membership Involves You.
