ELI: Did you know that Surfrider staff can help you create an online petition or automated emails to your elected officials? This can be a great way to increase pressure on officials to act and demonstrate that you have the community behind you. The Eastern Long Island Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation continues to fight a badly conceived beach engineering project in Montauk, NY. They created a petition that you can sign yourself, here.
CLI: Trying to increase your membership? The Central Long Island Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation organized a fun holiday party for “Surfrider Members Only” that included food, drinks, surf films, and a celebration of the great work done by Surfrider CLI volunteers in 2015. Of course, anyone could sign up to be a member at the door to partake in the event. By creating a fun event they were able to celebrate their victories while also strengthening their Chapter with new members.
