Community Engagement Committee (CEC)

The Community Engagement Committee (CEC) is a volunteer committee that helps with the planning and organization of Committee events. In addition, the CEC works with the VMA office staff to recruit and organize volunteer street captains to help in welcoming new Village residents and distributing flyers for upcoming events on their respective streets.  This committee has up to 6 appointed members, including a Chairperson, and the Council seeks volunteers and reappoints these members annually.
