Volunteer Community Correspondents
Be a neighborhood reporter


Here's how it works. You become a member of the website; just click Join near the top of any page. You will need to fill out a form and respond to a message from the system. This will allow you to sign in and post updates to your personal profile. Of course, if you're already a member, you can skip this step.

Now send a message from the contact form linked at the bottom of every page to the editor. Ask to be made a correspondent. Include the new user ID you just created and the name of your neighborhood.

We will contact you to discuss specific requirements. Following that conversation, assuming we're in agreement, we will schedule an online training session of about one hour, after which we will flip the switch to make you a correspondent.

You will be able to add articles to the News along with related links and images. Preface each article with the name of your neighborhood. Articles will be reviewed prior to publication for style and content by the editors and then activated or returned for changes. Once approved, articles will be activated. Based on demand and volume, a news category may be established for your neighborhood.

You will be responsible for the content of all articles bearing your name or user ID. Your name and a contact link will be published with each article.
