CVH transformed itself from a one-city, one-issue organization into a multi-chapter, multi-issue organization after a strategic planning process in 2014. A combination of things led us to this decision, but mainly a recognition that many changes that we sought were governed by state policy and we needed more reach to be able to have impact.
We now have chapters in four different parts of the state - New York City (covering all 5 boroughs, with deeper "hubs" in particular areas) and the Hudson Valley, including Westchester, Orange and Dutchess Counties. We build our power, however, by not only acting as hubs and chapters independently, but also by bringing together our members from across the entire region, and focusing collectively on the state when appropriate. We are able to come together across the state for leadership development opportunities as well as for campaign opportunities that affect us all.
CVH is pleased to announce the availability of our 2014 Annual Report of our organizational victories, progress and leadership development.
Special thanks to Susan Solomon for her extraordinary volunteer work as project coordinator and Marketing Bridge Strategic Communications for their great design work.
