Neighboring Tip of the Week – Send a thank you note to your neighborhood association or homeowner association leader(s).
Wichita has received its first icy and snowy weather of the year! We hope this tip finds you keeping warm wherever you may be!
This week, we’re thinking about associations already at work within your neighborhood: your neighborhood association (NA) or homeowner association (HOA). These associations are an important part of the neighborhood, so we propose: Send a thank you note to your neighborhood association or homeowner association leader(s).
NAs and HOAs can play a key role in helping residents know what is happening in their neighborhood, creating space for residents' voices to be heard, celebrating what is good in the neighborhood, and addressing issues. All this takes time and energy, and is often done by volunteers! One way to celebrate that hard work is to send a note to your NA or HOA leader(s), to let them know you both recognize and appreciate their commitment to the neighborhood. Maybe this looks like sending a message or email, or maybe this looks like finding out when the next meeting is and hand delivering a note. And while we're at the meeting we can raise our voice to point out the assets already present within our community. Let’s both recognize and appreciate those committed to our neighborhoods and be neighbors of abundance and joy.
