A List Of What The Community Needs

We've written before about the get more involved area and letting members apply their skills to the community (ABCD).

Kraut and Resnick suggest something even better. Create a list of things the community needs.

When members know what a community needs it offers them a chance to be influential within the community. It lets members feel important. It gives members a sense of ownership over the community. They are able to contribute their resources, skills, and experience in a meaningful way. 

It's a very-simple way to motivate the community. Even better, you can actually get things your community needs. Perhaps you need a designer, some support at upcoming event, access to a ladder, or an expert on horticulture. 

What if your community doesn't need anything? Then research what the community wants to do/achieve and what it needs to get there.
