March 2017 Updates

Report-back on NYC REIC Organizational Planning Meeting:

On March 5th, the founding board of directors held a well-attended organizational planning meeting to plan our strategy and create a timeline for next year. Workshop sessions allowed for the greatest inclusion of member input and discussion, as we thought about where the REIC stands now, where we are trying to get over the coming year, and how to get there. We gathered all the tasks that need to be completed, put them into various categories, distributed them over a timeline, and took personal responsibility for completion. READ MORE!

Report-back on REIC U and CORB Joint Meeting:

REIC U reconvened in February, setting three committee objectives: (1) hosting regular social/educational events, with the next two in cooperation with CORB; (2) creating an all-member orientation on the REIC + training in community outreach; and (3) developing marketing materials. Members were tasked with identifying meeting venues (and adding their details to this spreadsheet – please add to it!) for future events. READ MORE!

CORB: Community Outreach & Relationship Building
The former PBIG: Public Buildings Inventory Group seeks new members with great community organizing skills. We are looking for those 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. We are looking for professional community organizers who might “train the trainers. We are also looking for members who can help with translation, where necessary - whether from Spanish, Chinese, Russian, or other languages.

Art & Media
We are now in the final phases of the creation of a new graphic identity for the REIC, with huge thanks to Roy Rub and Seth Labenz of Topos Graphics for their pro bono work!

We have already taken a poll among the Founding Board members and a couple of other active members, especially with respect to communications and design – and the two directions are still polling extremely close – with a slight advantage to the Building Material version. We want your VOTE! READ MORE!
