Let Us Begin
The letter “E” stands for Executive Officers. Congratulations! Now that your Block Club has been officially organized by an official Block Club Organizer and installed, you are ready to work.
You (the club) are ready for your first “E” meeting.
And remember… always the “E” – Executive Board Meeting before the Block Club’s GG (General) Meeting.
The Block Club “G” General or Regular Meeting
At this meeting, officers may want to start to think about those issues pertaining to your block and street.
Plan a General Meeting. The group may want to hold one more “E” meeting before your general meetings.
Decide where the General Meetings will be held – date and time
Keep the meeting place as close to the block and street as possible. A neighbor’s yard or a church is good places for a block club meeting,
Since this is a structured Block Club, you will decide on who can become a member and how much dues each will pay, whether it will be paid per family or per person and will your club ask for additional donations from businesses and churches for benevolence.
Dues may be from $5.00 to $20.00 a year. It all depends on what the block club intends to do and how often. Suggestion from the MBCC, if a block club begins to charge $20.00 or more, the block club should be rendering a service to the resident in the service area. For example, cutting grass or snow removal for those in need especially senior citizens, sick or disabled individuals. This should be done free if possible.
