Why Become a Member

For much of our history, civic associations have served as the “great free schools of democracy.” As a voluntary association, our capacity for collective action rests on members’ contributions of skill, effort, and time to a common purpose.

Our success in achieving our goals rests on our ability to make our voices heard in the public arena. And the more of us there are, the louder our collective voice will be, and the more we can achieve! The members of the Civic work to make our community a better, more pleasant place to live. We hope you’ll join us.
