The Steering Committee Wants to Hear from YOU on June 12th!

We will be deciding what legal entity the NYC REIC should form in order to meet its goals, possibly the most important decision we have made thus far. Please come to the public comment period of our next meeting on June 12th at 2:30pm. Location is TBA. Members should look out for more information via text message.

Come add your voice to the conversation!

With the Community Organizing and Relationship Building Working Group

The Community Outreach and Relationship Building  (CORB) Working Group is seeking new members with great community organizing skills. We are looking for someone who can help us build our community engagement model and educate the membership in best practices in how to reach out to communities and work together with them, in a horizontal, democratic, grassroots way.

With The Grievance Committee 

The Grievance Committee needs you to help us keep the REIC members and leadership accountable. We are working to establish the message and procedures that all members can expect all other members to uphold. We can use help in two phases: 1) Over the next month, the GC will establish procedures for evaluating complaints from members. 2) As required, self-selected members to meet when an appeal is made by a member or members to the GC.

Help us formulate a system of accountability and reasonable expectations to help keep the REIC open to all!
