Next Federation Membership Meeting
Thursday, 18 June 2020, 7:30 PM
As always, Federation meetings are open to the public — bring an interested neighbor or another officer from your association.
Meeting Topic: General County Update with Focus on Place Makers in Fairfax County
Speaker: Rachel Flynn, AIA, Deputy County Executive, Planning + Development
Since initially released in February, many aspects of the County's Strategic Plan have gone through major shake-ups due to the Covid-19 impacts. But the Plan is still solidly based on its three long-term County growth factors: transportation, land use, and economic development. Rachel gives an overview of the most recent Strategic Plan changes and discusses the impacts to these three factors in making places of growth, recreation, commerce and living.
This meeting will be held virtually. Dial-in and Login information is provided in the Agenda which will be posted the day of the meeting

Opening for Summer Interns to Update the Federation's Websites/Database and/or increase our social media presence
The Fairfax Federation would like to redesign its membership database and website. If you know students with the ability to help us with this effort and who would like to volunteer as an intern over the summer months, please have them contact the Federation Webmaster. Responses by 30 June would be appreciated. You are encourage to forward this request to those who you think are qualified and interested.
The database structure redesign would entail organizing the membership records by organization with attributes assignable to membership organizations, individual representatives of the member organizations, and financial reports of yearly membership activity.
The website structure redesign would entail refreshing our current site with the aim of organizing the data therein contained so that it is more logically presented and easily maintained.
Increasing our social media presence would involve coordinating the Federation presence on Facebook, Linkedin, and Twitter.
Intern applicants should submit examples of their current efforts.
