On Thursday, March 21, the staff of the Center for Coalfield Justice hosted its first quarterly member and supporter meeting. We are thrilled to have had a great turnout, with lots of good conversation and delicious food! Thank you to everyone who attended!
This meeting was an Open House, with people stopping in as they pleased and having the opportunity to talk to staff, board, and other members/supporters. We were unsure of how these meetings would be received, but we have heard such positive feedback that we have decided to have these member and supporter meetings on a monthly basis! These meetings will be held on the last Tuesday of each month from 6-8 p.m - mark your calendars!
We intend to continue with the Open House format, while also incorporating some programmed content based on the feedback we’ve received through our online survey. People who responded to our survey indicated that they are most interested in educational events, forums, and open house. If you have any comments or suggestions for these future gatherings, please be sure to communicate them to us by emailing our Outreach Coordinator, Lisa DePaoli, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our next monthly meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 30, in our office, from 6-8. At 6:15, we will have a brief presentation of who we are, followed by a description of our various campaigns. We really look forward to seeing and talking with you! This meeting will also be a Potluck, so feel free to bring your own dish to share, and CCJ staff will be bringing our favorite dishes, too!
