November Update: Our BIG Event & More!

CVN Chair's Report

Fall is here, the air is crisp and that can only mean one thing. It's time for the Community Residences Fall Clean-up! This is CVN's biggest event of the year. It is a great opportunity for you to bring you friends, siblings, co-workers etc... rake some leaves and spread some mulch. The sign-up is below and we hope to see you there!  

This time of year also means that CVN is looking for new leaders. As some members of our current leadership team transition off, we will be looking for enthuastic volunteers to fill the roles. If you are interested or are kind of interested, maybe, not quite sure... please reach out to one of current leadership team members to find out more. This month's meet-up at Spider Kelly's will be a great opportunity to talk to us or you can always email us. Our CVN emails are available here

If you are interested in leading volunteer events, check out the info at the end of this email from the CVN Forum on how to join our event leaders group.

From the CVN Forum

Part of CVN's mission is to create a positive difference in Arlington by developing leaders. To help promote leadership and provide more access to leadership opportunities we have created a new group to match leaders with volunteer events. Anyone interested in leading events can join. Joining the group doesn't commit you to leading an event. The goal is to expose people to opportunities and hopefully match volunteer leaders with an event, organization or activity that they are interested in. CVN's past experiences have found that a key factor in a successful volunteer event is a leader who is passionate about the activity.

CVN will use the group to send out information about potential volunteer events. We will post all the information we have on the event, such as a description of the event, information about the group we would be volunteering with, location, and date and time or potential dates if it is a flexible opportunity. If you are interested in leading an event just reply that you are interested and we will put you in touch with the contact for the group that we will volunteer with. Don't worry if you have never led an event before, we will work with you to get all the information and tools you need to run a successful volunteer event!
