Handoff to new Block Rep Coordinators


I just added those on this list who are also on the Nextdoor site as "leads."


Lead features:


I’m planning on using the site’s invite service to send postcards via snail mail to neighbors on my block inviting them to join.


I’m interested in this because I can add a customized 500 character message.

Mine will probably say something like:

"I’m your neighbor, Tanner on Olive St. Do you know we have a community group for our neighborhood? Safety & beautification are two ways we’re stronger together. Will you add your voice to ours? Connect online or in person: 6:30 PM, 1st Monday of the month at Cansler YMCA on 5th Ave @ Jessamine. Know someone needing help with Internet access? Call (877) 848-2810 or visit everyoneon.org.​​"

That’s 391 characters of allowed 500 (count includes spaces)

Also for leads – probably worth looking at starting an Internet access campaign. http://everyoneon.org/start-campaign/

About Tanner Jessel

I am a recent M.S. in Information Science graduate from the University of Tennessee School of Information Science. I was formerly a graduate research assistant funded by DataONE (Data Observation Network for Earth). Prior, I worked for four years as a content lead and biodiversity scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey's Biodiversity Informatics Program. Building on my work experience in biodiversity and environmental informatics, my work with DataONE focused on exploring the nature of scientific collaborations necessary for scientific inquiry. I also conducted research concerning user experience and usability, and assisted in development of member nodes with an emphasis on spatial data and infrastructure. I assisted with research designed to understand sociocultural issues within collaborative research communities. Through August 1, 2014, I was based at the Center for Information and Communication Studies at the University of Tennessee School of Information Science in Knoxville, Tennessee.
