Nikki,

Welcome to GNH Community where you can post activities and event, start a discussion or share pictures and video with you colleagues in other local nonprofits. It is possible to send event invitations to non-site members or to create a group and invite the members of the Chamber NPC to join that group. Each member can edit their settings to get email notice just about the things they want to hear about. I am open to making the chair of the council a co-administrator. This give you the ability to send messages to all members no matter what their settings and to ban folks if they are using the site inappropriately. Let me know if you have any questions.
