HELP WANTED: If you are interested in ‘doing more’, we have three opportunities for you!
LWVN’s Community Preservation Committee (CPC): This committee observes Newton’s Community Preservation Commission meetings, reads the applications before the Commission, and comments on each one. We have a group of people who are willing to read the applications, but need a chairperson to coordinate the process. This is not a huge time commitment! The Newton Commission meets at most once a month, their meetings end at a reasonable time, and readings/letters only need to be coordinated a few times a year (only when there is an application).
LWVN Committee Chairs for Environmental Issues Committee and for Municipal Finance Committee: These are chances to re-form committees that are no longer active. We are looking for people willing to chair each group, set up regular meetings and set modest goals to start.
Co-Producer for The League Presents…: Our monthly show is recorded at NewTV and can cover a wide range of topics. Being a co-producer means organizing the guests and hosts for LWVN’s monthly TV program, working with both to develop questions on the topic, and communicating with your co-producer and director. A co-producer does need some NewTV training, and it would be helpful to know how to use a camera or some of the other technology. Taping is once a month and we have a regular schedule, which makes planning ahead easier, so this is not a huge time commitment, but is a lot of fun!
