Neighborhood Leadership Training Survey

Hello Everyone -

I am part of a group that is putting together a training program for community members.  We have been brainstorming ideas and there are many possibilities from "how to become a non-profit" to "City boards and committees - what they do and how to join".  We feel that what will set our program apart is the fact that it will be truly community driven.  To that end, we are asking that as many people as possible to the following survey.
