Message from the President Feb 2017

We have an opportunity for public engagement that creates instead of resists. Our city has a store of energy in our citizens that can be used to grow and motivate, not just struggle and repel. As city representatives and neighborhood leaders we have the organization to turn their energy and motivation into improvements and community growth. The power of sustainable outreach and engagement comes from a willingness and ability to ask for their involvement

Message From The President Dec 2017

The holidays are a time for giving and a time for sharing. They are such an important time for Denver registered neighborhood organizations because they help us solidify our bonds of friendship and keep us going in these cold, dark months. The potlucks we organize and the people we share the season with are those who will sustain us and help us the rest of the year. I hope your holidays were warm and well-attended.

Presidents Message October 27, 2016

It is this need for knowledge sharing and exposure to the cities important topics that is a pillar of importance for the Denver INC and for your membership in our Inter-Neighborhood Cooperation. When representatives from your RNO attend our INC committee meetings and our delegate meetings, you have a great opportunity to keep up with the changes that the city government is making. INC creates the opportunity to participate in the decision making process and to influence the decisions that are made.

Presidents Message August 2016

Hello my fellow neighborhood and civic leaders. I hope you have been enjoying a beautiful Denver summer. When I think of what makes Registered Neighborhood Organizations so important for Denver, I think of all the ways that RNOs create community and how what makes Denver great is rooted in the diverse communities that exist within it. RNOs are filled with active citizens who care about the people they live with and about the quality of life that exists for themselves and their neighbors.

One way RNOs create community is by organizing and presenting events all over the city. In the summer these events are usually outdoors and well attended by the neighbors who live around them. We have fairs and festivals like the People’s Fair, the Harvey Park Festival, and the Mayfair Dog Days.

Hello again my fellow neighborhood and city leaders, here we are in Denver 2016; I hope it’s going well for you and your communities as we begin the summer. As we take some time, during the Memorial Day weekend, to celebrate the sacrifices and mourn the ultimate sacrifices that our forbearers made to sustain our country, I am writing to tell you that the need for active citizens who are willing to give of themselves to better our city and our nation is as relevant today as it has ever been in our fair city.

Presidents Message May 2016

For this president’s letter, I realize that many of you don’t really know who I am and what I stand for, so I’m going to take a minute to tell you a bit about myself.
I am a child of Denver. I was born at DGH, I grew up in northwest Denver, and attended elementary –> high school in the DPS schools there.
As my alma mater, North High School’s most famous attendee, Golda Meir, said, “Don’t be so humble – you are not that great.”
I want to let you know that I’ve been a neighborhood and community advocate from early childhood because, well, it’s just the way my mom and dad raised me. Growing up, I was constantly walking the streets, organizing neighbors, going to city meetings with my mom.

In my presentation for the INC presidential nomination, I laid out some guiding principles that I hope you will join me in holding during the coming year. Let us put effort into achieving balance in our approach to engaging with the city. We will expand our INC community by engaging more RNOs and empowering them to improve their neighborhood impact.
