RISE is Looking for New Leaders!

July, 2018: RISE is looking for new leaders! Since November 8, 2016, we’ve been going strong with hundreds of neighbors involved. In order to keep the momentum going, we need new leaders to keep stepping up. If you are interested in serving on the Leadership Team, please email us at roslindalerise@gmail.com by September 10, 2018. Please also feel free to pass on this message, or suggest people to us who you think would be good to serve on the Leadership Team. We will confirm a new Leadership Team at the RISE Annual Meeting in October, with some current members staying on. The Leadership Team has nine members who meet monthly to advance RISE projects and events and to support the working groups. See below for more about the RISE structure. Please email roslindalerise@gmail.com with any questions.

Leadership Team and RISE Structure

On September 25,  2017, 19 people met and confirmed a slate of nine people to serve on the first-ever RISE Leadership Team. The team began meeting monthly in November 2017. Congrats to Aileen Montour, Alejandro Rodriguez, Andy Lesser-Gonzalez, Ingrid Lechuga de Hernandez, Jaime Pullen, Larry Bayer, Maria Hernandez, and Sarah Byrnes.

Update, April 2018: Since November, in addition to planning and debriefing the December Birthday Party, the team has been focusing on supporting the many parts of RISE. Check out the Updates page on our website for a snapshot of some of the work we have supported. For more info on the structure of RISE Working Groups, Projects and “Bridges,” click here. The Leadership Team initially volunteered to serve for six months, and now will volunteer for another six months, during which time they will figure out a longer-term self-perpetuation strategy for the Leadership Team. In October, RISE will hold another annual meeting and will put out a call for people who would like to join the Leadership Team. If you are interested, feel free to email roslindalerise@gmail.com.
