Community Meeting, January 2012

Thank you for being with us!

On Sunday January 22, 50 people joined us at Kensington Lofts to get the results from Makom’s survey and focus groups, hear about our strategic plan going forward, learn about upcoming leadership team elections and celebrate three years of Makom with champagne and cakes from Sweets From the Earth.

Your feedback has been heard, and the questions you asked following the presentation were noted so that we know what matters to you. We’ll be sharing the presentation on our website for those who couldn’t be there.

The celebration wasn’t just about Makom, it was about you too. Without you, there wouldn’t be Makom. Whether you come to Makom programs frequently, sometimes, or simply read our newsletters or online activities without ever coming to see us, we appreciate you.

Did you take photos at the event? Please upload them to our Facebook page.

Would you like to get more involved with Makom? Email Aaron to be notified of  possible opportunities. Immediate needs:  Holiday programming e.g. Purim, 2 people to be on Board’s Nominating Committee

We live tweeted the event!
