Community Boards need to share information with members and the public, to promote the Board’s activity and encourage participation. Boards also need to communicate with each other.

How do Community Boards share information with the public? What are the efforts they make to reach more people? How do they know who to reach out to? And how do they communicate with their fellow Boards?

Better outreach methods will assist Community Boards in sharing information more efficiently and more effectively, with the public and with one another. Expanding the Boards’ circles of outreach means getting more people involved in the Boards’ activity. More public participation means listening to the diversity of voices that is New York City.
