Central Delaware Advocacy Group news

The Central Delaware Advocacy Group plans to hold a retreat next month to develop a list of projects members want to pursue.

The priority-setting session will give CDAG a specific list that can be used to entice prospective donors.

Those at Thursday’s meeting noted that it was time for the organization to start raising money, as start up funds are nearly exhausted.

CDAG is in the process of getting 501 (c) 3 status. In the meantime, the group will seek donations from tax exempt grantors and encourage others to give money through the civic associations and other groups CDAG members represent.

CDAG members also plan to ask their civics to make donations to the organization.

CDAG’s list of voting members shrunk by one. PennPraxis will continue to advise the group, but resigned from board membership now that the organization has become more established.

CDAG Chairman Steve Weixler said this was an important step that will help CDAG emerge as the go-to organization for information on the Central Delaware plan.
