2009 WHNA Membership Drive, Volunteers Needed

Our 1st Membership Drive is upon us. In order to stand up for our neighborhoods rights, we need to become stronger.

We have had a lot of members over the last few years, but we need you to rejoin or join us for the first time. Membership runs from July 1st to June 30th each year. By joining now, you are a current member until June 30, 2010.

To boost our membership we will be canvassing the neighborhood door to door for three weekends this spring.

The dates are:

* April 18th, 2-4pm
* April 25th, 10am-noon
* May 2nd, 10am-noon

Please volunteer to help us canvas the neighborhood and increase our membership.

So far we have done several things including:

* Reduced crime with the creation of neighborhood watch and increased cooperation from the Dekalb County Police Department
* Built a website and distribution list to keep you aware of the many area projects that will effect our residents

We have several things that we want to do going forward including:

* Having neighborhood events that will give members the chance to interact regularly
* Alert members to proposed zoning changes or similar government actions that will effect this neighborhood
* Ensure that an organization exists that is capable of taking swift actions when needed to protect the goals of its members

Without your involvement in this organization (on any level, from member to volunteer to board member) we will not become the community that we can be.
