What's Next for Northfield.org?
Submitted by Jane B McWilliams on Fri, 01/17/2014 - 11:16am
The Contented Cow is the site for the Annual Meeting of Northfield Citizens Online, the organization behind Northfield.org, which celebrates its 23rd year in 2014. Born to “create an electric commons that strengthens the fabric of community in the greater Northfield area”, Northfield.org publishes stories and event listings from the community. But like all organizations, it must be dynamic and must change with changing times.
NCO has strived to ensure that Northfield.org has evolved to continue to be a valued resource for the Northfield community. To pursue that goal, in 2013, the board created a task force that, through discussions with focus groups with diverse participants, developed a set of recommendations, both short and long-term initiatives for future planning. These include changes in content, establishing funding and expanding use of social media and in-person events to engage Northfielders.
On January 22 at 7:00 p.m., Northfield.org members (registered users of the site) and the general public are urged to attend the NCO Annual Meeting to hear more about and respond to the report of the task force, “What’s Next for Northfield.org.” The NCO board welcomes help with taking Northfield.org to the next level in order to continue to be a valued resource for the community.
It won’t be all work and no play. Along with the cash bar, refreshments will be provided, and we'll host a quiz (with fabulous prizes) to test our brains!
