our team | about

Building an engaged local democracy requires an engaged team keeping it all running smoothly!

Here are the people behind Engage, the movers and shakers, the writers, the organizers,
the designers, the collaborators, the fetchers and the cat-herds.

Each one has their own set of interests and talents, and
we are so grateful for their contributions large and small.

(Hint: they all believe their own efforts to be small, but they don't realize how hugely essential they are!)

contributors | engagebarrie

By "Contributors", we don't mean donors (although many have given generously in that way, as well) – we mean the people who have contributed to the organization and its causes in various ways.  Whether sharing their expertise on particular issues, heading up a committee, volunteering their time and talents, writing articles or position papers, or rallying the troops for phone and email campaigns, Engage Barrie couldn't function without the collective effort of each and every one of these amazing community leaders.

This isn't an exclusive club – there's always room for more!  If you're a member who'd like to get even more Engaged with the organization, please contact the Board at admin@engagebarrie.org and let's explore the possibilities!
