Council of Neighborhood Associations
Revitalizing Democracy in Taos County
About CNAThe Council of Neighborhood Associations (CNA) is an informal council made up of representatives from about 35 Taos County Neighborhood Associations. It serves as a grass-roots forum to exchange information and discuss issues of concern to neighborhoods. The main concept is that due to geographic separation, limitations in public information sources, and other factors, many people may have a hard time finding out what is going on in other parts of the county. The monthly meetings of the CNA and the CNA mailing list offer a way for neighborhood representatives, community service organizations, and other interested parties to exchange information. The neighborhood representatives then take this information back to their own associations for dissemination into the community.
The CNA operates on a consensus model when it comes to voting on an issue, with two votes allotted to each neighborhood association. Discussion, and participation in the meetings, is open to all, however.
CNA Mailing ListThe CNA maintains an active discussion list on email. Signup to this list is unrestricted, and free. Instructions are available on-line, as are archives of past messages. To sign up, go to CNA List.
CNA MeetingsThe CNA meets monthly on the first Monday at 6:30. Location varies; most often at the Quality Inn in Taos. Check the mailing list or this page for most up-to-date information.
