nonprofits,local leaders & Grt.New Haven business sharing information
The City of New Haven is in the process of upgrading and increasing the functionality of its Elm City Resident Card. The City has contracted with Community Financial Resources, a non-profit that works nationally to develop consumer-friendly banking products for low-to-moderate income households), to help design an enhanced card that meets the needs of its residents.
One of the first steps in this process is to ask for input from local organizations that have first hand knowledge of their constituents needs. We would like to invite your organization to participate in a conference call on Thursday September 6th at 1 PM.
The topics to be covered in this meeting include:
* Overview of the card upgrade project
* Sharing a proposed survey that will be distributed to residents who receive the New Haven e-newsletter or other city on-line communications,
* Discussing how to include the opinions of residents who do not have access to these communication avenues, and
* Recruiting organizational representatives to act as project advisors.
We hope that you will be able to attend this meeting to help us develop an inclusive plan to elicit the opinion of all residents and to possibly be a part of the team.
