Tips for Representatives to Engage their Constituents

– Tips for BPC Representatives and Alternates to Engage Their Constituents –


Dear Big Park Council Representatives and Alternates,

These are the tips that the Membership Committee came up with awhile back for you to consider to better engage your neighbors about what’s going on in your neighborhood, in the Big Park Council, and in the Community.  Please consider taking on one or more of these ideas so that your neighbors know what you and the BPC are doing for our community.  Thank you so much!

John Wichert
President, Big Park Council
