Taking the plunge to get involved
This meeting held last month is an excellent primer on how to get involved and participate in any number of local boards and effectively make your opinions known to those in government. Attended this event and although it didn’t lead to a writeup at the time, the attendance of about 50 people was impressive in and of itself. We know that figure is accurate as we took a headcount. We are not counting the jolly green giant who arrived late and under the weather. Besides, he was more vegetable than human that night.

The Citizens Campaign hosted a Call to Service forum on November 17, 2009 to increase awareness of leadership and service opportunities in the City of Hoboken.
The forum is part of a statewide Jersey Call to Service, a public service initiative of the Citizens Campaign to inspire citizens to participate in the leadership of their communities and reverse the tide of government waste and corruption.
The forum focuses on the Hoboken appointments process, including inside tips for seeking and gaining appointment and information about the current service opportunities available.
