DCA Committees are where the true work of Civic Engagement Happens! Committees Meet on the Second Saturday of each month from 10A - 12P @ Kenilworth Rec Center
DCA needs YOU! If you are committed to making lasting change in our neighborhood and you have a few hours to spare per month, contact us to be part of a DCA committee.
DCA's Constitution and Bylaws spell out specific duties of the executive committee. Executive committees that also serve as governance or nominating committees are typically responsible for bylaws, policy review, board education, board self-assessment, new member orientation, and board succession planning.
The Budget Committee develops ways and determines means for raising funds necessary for building the treasury so as to support Association activities. This committee is responsible for preparing a proposed operating budget for the fiscal year, and directing the time and manner of paying Association dues and assessments.
The Membership Committee helps to recruit and retain members. Volunteers help to distribute membership information at Citizen Association community events and by emailing or hand-delivering membership and renewal information to community residents.
The Communications Committee focuses on communicating with the neighborhood along with general maintenance and updating of the DCA website.
