At April meeting, a task force was formed to determine feasibility of a neighborhood conference with a workshop format that focused on RNO development and engagement topics in a roundtable format. Jane L. and Ian Harwick headed the task force. All city-registered RNO’s were contacted, as well as INC’s total RNO membership list to solicit feedback based on a structured set of questions to each. It was determined this conference is not desired in the summer months and that INC would need to be more clear about topics for many to carry it forward to their neighborhoods. Answer the “what’s in it for me” value.

Change on the Front Range – New Leaders Council Denver (NLC). Ian has been recently involved with this newly created organization. It’s a nation-wide fellowship offering a five-month course teaching people how to, for example, run for office, how to raise funding, develop a ‘personal story’ and how to better communicate in a political world. Ian is asking INC to be a possible financial sponsor. George suggests the topic be tabled until more information can be garnered to make an educated decision. NLC does not have a stated political affiliation. Ian will forward their web site and links to help research NLC.

Parry Burnap Accelerate Climate Action Presentation
Climate change important to our time. Our goal is to inspire neighbors to take small steps to take actions to reduce impact on climate because we learned that citizens identify with what neighborhood they live in more so than ever before and they can identify with “place” and personal ability to impact change. We talk about weather and not the climate.
Working for about a year and following information from Naomi Klein book “This Changes Everything” about climate change

There are no updates from Committee chairs, as Margie has resigned as ZAP chair, Maggie (PARC) and Joel (Transportation) were not in attendance. A discussion ensued about succession of chairs in committees, as Margie’s resignation underscores the need for a successor and continuity with committee initiatives and achievements. Co-chairs may be a viable alternative. Unfortunately, there continues to be a core group of leaders/doers and not enough of them. This both impedes accomplishments and continuity, but also contributes to ‘volunteer burnout.’

2017 INC Survey – Surveys are an action item for 2017; the 2016 Residents’ Issues survey was quite successful. Should there be both an INC member (RNO) only survey and a general public survey? There will be the need for a ‘to-be-named’ point person for surveys. This is an action item for the April meeting. Jane led the survey, with a team including Tom Mobley, George Mayl and JJ, presenting summary results to each City Council member. The team recommended repeating it. The summary is on the INC website under the ‘Library’ tab.
