The PNLT's volunteer committees meet monthly on the last Wednesday of the month. Each committee is made up of a group of community members who work together to further the goals of PNLT. Participation is open to all members and we invite you to join us!
MEETING THIS WEEK:
Community Engagement & Education Committee (CEE): This committee works to reach out to and spread the idea of community land trust to the wider community members. The Committee develops educational materials and events and organizes community engagement and community-based participatory planning activities to promote greater community participation.
Governance Committee: This committee’s primary responsibility is organizational development from the legal and governance perspective. The committee works on building a community based and democratic governance model for Parkdale context, while also developing policies and bylaws that reflect the principles of diversity, equity, and democracy.
Equity Committee: The Equity Committee works to encourage all different kinds of people (with different perspectives and different experiences) to join the Parkdale Neighbourhood Land Trust as members; to make sure that everyone is treated fairly; and to make sure that every member understands how things work, has a voice and is able to meaningfully participate in PNLT activities. To join this committee please contact: APortillo@parc.on.ca
Fundraising Committee (Project Based): This subcommittee focuses on fundraising – identifying potential funding opportunities, organizing donor drives and creating great fundraising events.
NOT MEETING THIS WEEK:
Acquisition & Due Diligence Committee (Invite only): The PNLT Acquisitions Committee leads the planning of acquisitions of real property. The Acquisitions Committee includes a Negotiations & Due Diligence subcommittee, which undertakes formal negotiations and due diligence reviews. Due to the confidential nature of much of the work, this committee currently operates on an invite-only basis. If you are interested in joining this committee please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
