News & Updates in Murray Hill
Business Networking Event at the AKC Museum of the Dog
On December 2, current and prospective Murray Hill Neighborhood Association business members participated in a networking event hosted by the AKC Museum of the Dog. This gathering gave local business people the opportunity to meet each other in the museum’s inviting space, and they also had time to view the museum’s outstanding collection of canine-related art and unique exhibits. At these events, organized by the MHNA Business Committee, attendees can share their business pitches and explore ways to partner with each other. The events are curated to be meaningful for Murray Hill business professionals who care about our community, want to be involved and wish to grow their spheres of influence. Committee chairs Lilli Seidman Davis and Michael-Ann Rowe welcome suggestions, and if you would like to sponsor a business networking event please email them at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.

MHNA Tree Guard Repair and Replacement Program
The Murray Hill Neighborhood Association Green and Clean Committee is pleased to announce a program designed to help individual homeowners and residential buildings in Murray Hill repair or replace broken tree guards on their property.

Any resident wishing to have the Association help out with a project of this type should contact Tom Horan at firstname.lastname@example.org.

And The Oscar Goes To…

MHNA 2019 Annual Survey: Better Together!
The Murray Hill Neighborhood Association annual survey was sent to everyone on the MHNA email list. Our email list includes both members and non-members who have signed up for our emails. 174 people responded to the survey. We thank them for their thoughtful comments. Questions ranged from general opinions about Murray Hill to specific questions about MHNA programs. The survey contained many free format answer fields, which allowed respondents to give unstructured answers.
The MHNA uses the responses to the survey to help understand our member's concerns and priorities and also to prioritze our work. We share the survey summary with government officials.
