Today's topic:  
Broadening Village Participation

Arlington Neighborhood Village (ANV) in VA is a member of the nationwide "Village to Village Network". ANV is 7 years old and has 330+ members. 16% of their membership are people of color. Wendy will share the success story of her Village in their effort to recruit new members. 

ANV has broadened its outreach and engagement during the pandemic to include a more diversified membership and volunteer corps in accord with its Board and member strategic directions. Join us to hear what strategies that they have used; what worked and how they are planning to continue this effort into 2021-2022.

Wendy Zenker is the Executive Director of Arlington Neighborhood Village in Arlington, VA, a suburb of

Washington DC. Prior to joining ANV in 2017, Wendy was a SVP for the National Council on Aging, where

she directed the implementation of nationwide programs to improve the health and financial well-being

of older adults, especially those with low incomes; and had a 30+ year career with the Federal

Government, her last position as the COO of the Corporation for National Service, which oversees the

AmeriCorps and Senior Corps programs.


Come to join us for our new “Good Morning, Howard!”  zoom group.  We will be following the new schedule as listed below:

Wednesdays at 9:00 AM

Our goal is to provide Howard County residents an opportunity to come together in a relaxed atmosphere, to meet with others, and to participate in the discussion/activities of Health and Wellness. Our content may include using technology to connect with family and friends, gardening, exercise, music, movies, jokes, popular websites, and healthy diet.

Participation is easy because driving is not required. This social program is for TVIH members and older adults from Howard County. This program was popular in August and is continuing in September.

Volunteers (TVIH members) will take turns to serve as the hosts of the GMH zoom meetings. The hosts will greet the participants, make introductions, and give the feedback/suggestions back to the membership committee.

Most people will join by using their computer, tablet or smartphone. To join, you need a zoom meeting link. The link will be emailed to you after you register. 

To Join Zoom Meeting by using a smartphone, dial 1-929-205-6099. You will be prompted to enter the meeting ID and the password.  If you are prompted to enter a personal ID, simply press the # sign.
