RCPC Studies Adjusted Town Hall Meeting Schedule - Next meeting February 19

Sunday, January 11, 2015

Were you able to attend an RCPC Town Hall meeting last year? If so, you may have noticed that the RCPC board was experimenting with new practices to make it easier for folks to attend: for example, opening at 7 p.m. and serving Jules Pizza to help tide folks over who come straight from work without grabbing dinner.

You may also have noticed RCPC put more emphasis on broadly publicizing the meetings to increase awareness of them among residents who may not see the announcements in The Rockridge News.

Results were informative: Several of last year's programs had higher attendance than any in the previous year; a few programs filled the Library meeting room. However, at least one program was cancelled for insufficient RSVPs, a practice instituted out of respect for the time of prospective panelists.

The experiments will continue in 2015. Now, instead of hosting Town Halls every month of the year (except August), we will organize five or six only (in February, April, June, September, November, and possibly December) and continue to improve the planning that goes into the meetings.

If there are topics you would like covered, please share them with us at info@rockridge.org. Please also forward your thoughts and suggestions about these experiments. Note: the next RCPC Town Hall Meeting is Thursday, February 19.
