ACTIONS

Use word of mouth…
Spread the word virally…
Become a local ‘watchdog’…
Write to your local publications…
Write to your local elected officials…
Speak up at your municipal town meeting…
Get others to out to speak at your local meeting…
Bring other groups and organizations into the effort…

 

Word of mouth…
● Tell others about the CAMA website
● Invite them to visit, become educated, donate, and take action

 

Spread the word virally…
● ‘Like’ the No Aggregation Facebook page, and invite friends to ‘Like’ it
● ‘Share’ and comment on posts from the No Aggregation page.
● Follow @NoAggregation on Twitter, and retweet

 

Become a local ‘watchdog’…
● Commit to keeping your ‘ear to the ground’ for aggregation developments in your home town and neighboring towns.
● Google-search (town name) + energy aggregation (weekly)
● Search local publications online (weekly)
● Check your local municipal website – News, meeting minutes and agendas (weekly)
● Call your local town clerk – Ask whether the town is looking at ‘saving residents money’ with energy aggregation

 

Write to your local publications…
● Local paper, online-only publications, town newsletter
● Check ahead to see if there are any guidelines or parameters required for submission
● Use the talking points or material from other examples for your content
● Keep it simple and to the point!

 

Write to your local elected officials…
● Use or start with the letter template located in Resources, but make it personal

 

Speak up at your municipal town meeting…
● If you are not already accustomed to speaking at meetings, find out ahead of time the proper point during the meeting to speak and how much time you will be given.
● Focus on one or two of the Talking Points
● Speak from the heart – no need to be a professional
● Have copies of the Talking Points (PDF file) available to hand out to the Mayor and Council, other citizens who are interested, and any members of the press who may be in attendance.
● Invite everyone to visit the CAMA website – www.noaggregation.com – and be sure that the web address is visible on anything you hand out.

 

Get others to out to speak at your local meeting…
● Who do you know that’s passionate about freedom of choice, renewable energy, free enterprise, and small government – or fed up with government encroachment on personal liberty?
● Invite those people to join you at the next local meeting
● Lead them to educate themselves on the topic of aggregation through the CAMA website
● Divide up the talking points and have everyone speak for a minute or two on different points at the meeting.

 

Bring other groups and organizations into the effort…
● Some groups have a predisposed opposition to energy aggregation, on principle

  • Environmental groups
  • Political groups that stand opposed to big government, encroachment on personal liberty, etc.

● Simple education with the CAMA website will quickly activate them
● ANY group with which you are affiliated is a candidate for support – PTA, business networking group, social group, etc.

    Hey this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if
    you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted
    to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    Feel free to surf to my site; google
