MACG's current action teams

Research action.JPG

Members of MACG identify problems, concerns and hopes in our communities.  Through our "Action Teams" we research, build relationships, and launch into action.  The results of these activities usually develop into our campaigns.

We typically have more than one active campaign at any given time. The more we win, the stronger we get.

The issues we work on can be large or small, but must meet the following criteria:

  • They must make a difference in people's lives.
  • They must be specific, measurable and winnable.
  • They must help build our organization and move us forward.
