As a member of the Board of Trustees who works for the well-being of communities, the minimum would be to listen to them in one way or another. Several platforms can be used. Mailing lists, social networks which are now becoming essential in terms of communication. I think that all the elected members of the Council should connect more often to the communication platforms of the communities in order to know their reality and their daily life in terms of projects, innovations and "Wiki" needs.
Council members could also participate in local events organized by communities from time to time in order to be close to them.
