Committee Report Back:
In April, your Steering Committee wrapped up its very first quarter by learning from members of the NorthEast Investment Cooperative (NEIC), the Grounded Solutions Network, the National Cooperative Bank and AAFE’s Equality Fund.
We organized an All-Member Meeting that included speakers from New Yorkers for a Human Scale City and the Artist Studio Affordability Project, as well as an introduction to #SaveNYC, TakeBackNYC and Small Business Congress and SaveNYCjobs.org, which are organizing to pass the Small Business Jobs Survival Act, a policy solution that has been on the table for 30 years(!), that would allow NYC’s small businesses and artists to survive by putting regulations on commercial real estate similar to those on residential property.
This was a mutual introduction, and we look forward to finding ways of working together!
We continue to work towards establishing a permanent structure for the NYC REIC with ratified bylaws, while carrying out the other duties outlined in our charter. In addition to the Grievance Committee and Communications Committee, we have established a Governance and Bylaws Committee and an Events Committee.
We will work closely with Community Organizing & Relationship Building (CORB) and Scoping, which are transitioning from being Workgroups to Committees.
If you are interested in participating in any of these committees, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
