As we move toward 2007 and beyond, what we know for sure is that the demand for TENAC services continues to increase.  Due to the overwhelming demand for TENAC services, as an all volunteer organization we need TENAC Board members and TENAC volunteers to help by serving on one or more of our newly established standing committees and/or ad hoc subcommittees.  In most instances, you need to only devote between 2 to 3 hours per month for each committee assignment.  You do NOT need to be an expert to volunteer but you do need to be willing to work with others and to simply “do what you can” to help with committee assignments.  Committees will be responsible for reporting the results of their activities at the regularly scheduled monthly meetings.  A TENAC liaison will be assigned to assist committees with their activities. 


All you need to do is 1) review the committee descriptions, 2) decide which one(s) you would like to serve on, 3) fill out the form at the bottom of page 2, and 4) submit (mail, or email) the completed form to TENAC.  Someone will contact you with next steps early in January so that committees can begin to meet, set priorities, prepare plans for actions and develop their first presentations for the upcoming TENAC Board meeting in February or March of 2007.


Please don’t put off making a commitment to help the organization that is committed to helping you and making a positive difference for all tenants in the District of ColumbiaThank you for responding to this urgent “Call to Action” and we look forward to working with you in 2007.

Ad Hoc Subcommittees will exist only as long as the TENAC Board of Directors determines that they are needed.  Volunteering on one or more of the Ad Hoc Subcommittees does not count against or conflict with your service on a Standing Committee.  Ad Hoc Subcommittees shall also report on the results of their activities at the regularly scheduled monthly TENAC meetings.
