The Glassell Park Neighborhood Council aims to set the gold standard in public service. We care deeply about the safety & welfare of our residents, the economic development of businesses & properties, and the support of its organizations & institutions. We are committed to educating and creating a more informed & emboldened board by focusing on harnessing our strengths to discover creative solutions for improving our neighborhood. We aim to inspire participation in our stakeholders and strengthen relationships throughout the community and the city at large. The GPNC is a group of motivated, professional individuals that share a common purpose; to inspire the development of a community that is great place to live work, play, learn, and worship.
We have created discussion-based community Town Halls that will be held monthly. These Town Halls will consist of 1-2 timely topics and will have guest experts giving presentations. Every GPNC Board member will have the opportunity to hold a Town Hall on the relevant topic of their choice.  

After our first Board-hosted event, National Night Out (August 2nd), we outreached to the community and learned that our stakeholders would like to see more family-friendly events within our community.  As a result, we have created "Area Block Parties." Each of the 7 areas within Glassell Park will host a block party within their area. This provides an excellent opportunity to showcase and promote several different businesses/resources within GP. 

We are partnering with the Glassell Park Improvement Association (and several more to come!) to compete in the Clean Streets LA Challenge. We have already held 3 community cleanup events and are thrilled to participate in a City challenge. 

The GPNC aims to focus on the following Goals:
 
• Educate and create a more informed and empowered board.
 
• Hold more town halls and seminars to educate the public on a variety of city matters and topics affecting our community.
 
• Increase Community outreach
 
• Strengthen the board’s relationship with the community and the city at large
 
• Focus on creative solutions to improve the community
 
 
 
We have decided to organize theme-based monthly Town Halls starting in the fall. Each GPNC Board member will have the opportunity to arrange a Town Hall on the relevant topic of their choice meanwhile all schedule events, all website postings, and social media outlets will support the subject of that month. These Town Halls will consist of 1-2 timely topics supporting the theme and will consist of guest experts giving presentations and the public’s ability to ask questions and give feedback.
 
We are planning to empower the board to be a voice for our community by diligently filing Community Impact statements on a monthly basis.
 
We have formed an ad hoc committee tasked in creating a manual for all board members to better educate us through best practices, glossary, flowcharts, and contact lists. We would be happy to share this manual with DONE and our fellow Neighborhood Councils if it could help them.
 
We surveyed the community recently and learned that our stakeholders would like to see more family-friendly events.  As a result, we have created "Area Block Parties." Each of the 7 Area Representatives on the board are tasked with hosting a block party within their area. They are encouraged to foster participation from the business, education, organization, and institutional reps on the board. This provides an excellent opportunity to showcase our ever-growing and changing community.

Our biggest challenge so far has been overcoming the image of the former GPNC. 
 
Unfortunately, our name doesn't carry much weight within the community. There is an established bad reputation tied to the GPNC. This is our biggest hurdle to overcome. 
 
We choose to lead by example. We are going to be a very visual NC in an attempt to change our perception. The more interest and partners we can build, the greater influence we will have. The greater our influence, the better we can operate on behalf of Glassell Park.

When you bring additional fields into a conversion, Quick Base often finds inconsistencies. For example, say you're converting your Companies column into its own table. One company, Acme Corporation, has offices in New York, Dallas and Portland. So, when you add the City column to the conversion, Quick Base finds three different locations for Acme. A single value in the column you're converting can only match one value in any additional field. Quick Base needs you to clean up the extra cities before it can create your new table. To do so, you have one of two choices:

  • If you want to create three separate Acme records (Acme-New York, Acme-Dallas and Acme-Portland) click the Conform link at the top of the column.
  • If the dissimilar entries are mistakes (say Acme only has one office in New York and the other locations are data-entry errors) go back into your table and correct the inconsistencies—in this case, changing all locations to New York. Then try the conversion again.
