What is the Community Connector?

The Community Connector is a quarterly networking event (4 times annually) that can help build and strengthen your neighborhood and its association. Center For Neighborhoods will partner with a sponsoring neighborhood association to host a social event at a location within the neighborhood.

CFN is providing an opportunity to connect with other grassroots neighborhoods and leaders in a vital effort to sustain the quality of our neighborhoods. Neighborhood leaders will be able to develop relationships between Neighborhood Institute alumni, community leaders and neighbors who may be referred to future Neighborhood Institutes.

What does the Center For Neighborhoods supply for the Community Connector?

CFN will provide food and drinks for 40 people including postcard mailings sent to all Neighborhood Institute alumni. If musical entertainment is appropriate and desired by the sponsoring neighborhood association, then CFN will work to fulfill that request. If the sponsoring neighborhood would like to host a "pot luck" dinner, then CFN could provide the meat selection and drinks and each attendee could bring a dish to share.

Different topics, themes or membership meetings can be incorporated into the Community Connector event and we are happy to help you coordinate the event.
