Membership – why it is important
The larger the membership in FHACA, the stronger our voice will be in dealing with issues that affect our community. Every name on our membership list indicates a person who cares what happens in our community. When working with the City, it shows strength and support for our view of an issue, that we are concerned citizens who care.
Volunteer for your community
Many hands make our work easier! You can help our community to be stronger. We know not anyone has time on their hands, but even two hours a year (!) makes a huge difference. For example: decorating a tree in front of the community centre before Christmas or help clean up a park once a year in spring. Or help serve soup and hot chocolate at the childrens’ winter event.
If you would like to join our board or a subcommittee, that would be great. The board meets about 10 yimes a year for about 90 minutes. We would also like to ask you to take on coordination f 1 or 2 smaller events. Of course, other members will help you. However, a board position requires a bit more commitment as we expect you to participate in the meetings.
