MAMGA Communications Committee
Email, Facebook, websites, oh my! Following the yellow brick garden path is overwhelming with so much information - email inbox is full, web bookmarks list is long. If we only had YOUR brain!
Join our MAMGA Communication Committee and share your ideas for MAMGA emails, website and Facebook. Help us make our electronic communication even better.
MAMGA Community Services Committee
The Community Services Committee is responsible for identifying and developing ways to share expertise and resources with the community.
One of the biggest ways we share our expertise is through our volunteer hours. 86% of members surveyed enjoy volunteering in horticultural gardens, providing education or participating in a demonstration program to do just that – share what we know. Would you like to help update the volunteer opportunity list so that members can more easily find good volunteer matches?
And, in the past, we have shared financial resources to start or expand community garden projects through the Community Garden Grants. The grant process has been placed on hold since the Garden Journal sales have stopped, but there is still interest in determining whether this resource might be made available to members or targeted member projects. 35% of members surveyed would also like MAMGA to offer a scholarship for MGV or horticultural training. Would you like to help explore those options and make recommendations?
MAMGA Membership Committee
Here are a couple more survey results – results that are directly related to functions of the Membership Committee:
60% of members surveyed are interested in monthly membership meetings with an educational speaker. Volunteers to organize speakers and meeting locations are needed to start providing this opportunity. Do you have ideas for this?
89% of members surveyed like the discounts at area nurseries and businesses. Members often recoup the annual cost of MAMGA membership in just one or two shopping trips! Would you like to help make these contacts?
Want to know more? The Membership Committee also needs help to distribute the results of the survey!
