Asheville Voice for Animals Message Board › Action groups
Action group leaders and members ---- How to get started.
The Board of AVA will support and advertise the actions of the group. We will mentor and direct the actions of your action group. The group will be free to promote their particular venue at the discretion of the AVA organizer/board. You will be able to operate under the banner of AVA and have the support of its full membership and the board members.
How to get started:
Get your members together and have a round table discussion covering the objective of the group. Inform the AVA organizer of this meeting as they will make every effort to attend and help organize your efforts. You can use the meetup site to send emails or you can contact the organizer to send them on your behalf. We may also have telephone numbers. We may also have contacts that can assist you in your efforts. Decide on a leader and a person to keep the minutes of your meeting.
Brainstorm together on how your group can better benefit the lives of sentient beings and to promote veganism. Develop an action plan and how you will implement these activities.
Will you need more volunteers? Be sure to start small! Will you need printed material? How much? Do you have specific dates of activities that need advertising?
Pick an effort and stick to it! Do not stray from your mission. Its better to do one thing very well than to spread your group to thin.
Network within your area to gather interested members who can assist you in your efforts. Always have an AVA card or flier to present to prospective members.
Give each action group members specific duties and deadlines to accomplish.
Create fliers, to advertise, gather resources through your organizer to promote your efforts.
Be aware to promote the other action groups. We want our organization to grow and for every member to have a valid part in its actions.
Most importantly communicate with your organizer. The group leader should send weekly updates to the organizer.
AVA may have some extended support for your action group. But we will need specifics of your needs. Communicate, that’s the key!
Therefore: Start communicating today. Let the Organizer know what you intentions are and when your first meeting will occur.
I would like to hear from the Campus group and the Political action group. Its time to get these groups in action.
Ok- Now is the time to get started. We can get organized with our efforts now, and be in full swing by this spring. Its gonna be FUN!
