Brookland Main Street Committees Looking for New Volunteers

The new Executive Director of the Historic Brookland Main Street initiative, Lee Alexander, sent out a message last week:
We are actively scouting for new volunteers to join the community working within our four main program committees. We seek volunteers with all types of backgrounds and experiences -- people who want to be part of the action; people who want to be "in-the-know"; people who are looking to become active and involved and give back to the community!

Here's just a taste of how to get involved:

Promotions Committee: Creates the excitement for our commercial district. Coordinates our street festival, parades, retail events and promotional campaigns. This committee meets the first Thursday of every month. This committee is meeting Thursday, July 6, 2006 at 7:15 PM! (apologies for my tardiness on this one -jaime)

Organization Committee: Involves creating a framework for our community that is well represented by businesses, property owners bankers and neighbors. In other words, a strong organization provides the stability to build and sustain long-term success. This committee meets the second Tuesday of every month. Our next committee meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, July 11, 2006!

Economic Restructuring Committee: Gets involved in analyzing current market forces to develop the long term success of our merchants as well as becomes active in helping to recruit new businesses to our neighborhood. This committee meets the third Tuesday of every month. Our next committee meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, July 18, 2006!

Design Committee: Works to enhance the street appeal and attractiveness to our business district. This committee meets the third Thursday of every month. Our next committee meeting is scheduled for Thursday, July, 20, 2006!

Our meetings are held at the Brookland Visitors Center, 3420 9th Street, NE, and typically begin at 7:00 PM. If you would like more information about each committee, please contact me, Lee Alexander, Executive Director - Historic Brookland Main Street/CDC. I can be reached during normal business hours Monday through Friday at (202) 529-8400.

Please plan join us at one, two, or all program committee meetings this month!
