Duties: Increases participation in CHRS through membership drives and promoting CHRS at community events.
CHRS’s first Annual Fund drive was quite a success, raising over $6,600 from our membership. Thank you to all who donated. We launched the fund because, as Capitol Hill continues to grow and prosper, we find that membership dues simply do not cover the cost of our expanding portfolio of key initiatives. The Annual Fund is now a permanent part of our fundraising efforts. Members and others who wish to support general operations or specific projects can donate to the fund throughout the year.
Be a Member, Get a Member — Our next major initiative is to substantially increase our member base with our “Be a Member, Get a Member” campaign. With over 1,100 members, CHRS is already a powerful and effective voice representing the interests of Hill residents. Our goal is to strengthen that influence by doubling the number of members by the end of the year. We are asking for your help. In the next few weeks, you will receive a copy of our new membership brochure. Please take a look and then pass it on to a neighbor or friend and suggest that they join CHRS — or consider giving a gift membership. If you prefer, you can send the names and addresses of potential members to caphrs@aol. com with the subject line: “potential member.” (The new brochure is available online at www.chrs. org). Also, copies of the brochure will be placed at locations such as the Northeast and Southeast libraries. If you know of other locations that would be appropriate, please email our membership chairman, Catherine Smith, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Get Involved — CHRS depends on volunteers for its many activities. We need help in the following areas: House and Garden Tour; Communications; Administration; Membership; and Historic Preservation. If you have some time to spare and are willing to share your expertise as a volunteer, please contact Paul Cromwell at email@example.com.
