Have you heard about the CSA 411 Facebook group? It's the unofficial civil forum for Q&A about this beautiful part of Michigan. Comments are solely the opinion of the individual posting and do not represent those of the CSA. Looking for a ride to the airport, a babysitter, a boat toFB411invite borrow, Interlochen tickets? This is the place to look. Please do not solicit professional business here. You can post a flyer in the CSA building or advertise in the CSA Assembly News. The privacy setting of the group was changed due a proliferation of unsolicited requests to join. You may request to join the group by asking a current member of CSA 411 to invite you. They type your name or email into the "Invite Members" box while in the group on their PC. If the current member is using a Smartphone, there is a blue button they click that says "+Invite". The group admin will approve the invitation and you will be added.

About the Communications Committee

The Communications Committee is working hard to provide more and better digital communications to our community. Communications committee mandate falls into three areas – CSA website, CSA social media presence including our Facebook pages, Instagram, YouTube channel, and weekly activities emails – and help keep people connected to the CSA both during the season and throughout the year. We want people who are coming up for weekends or later in the summer to be "involved" in the CSA all summer long!

Thanks to everyone in the community who has sent us information and events to post and ideas for stories. Feedback from the CSA community indicates the communications have been well received and have even created a buzz. We also do a few articles over the winter to keep up the momentum, as while we are a summer community many committees and volunteers work year round on programs and projects.

The Communications Committee meets weekly on Tuesdays throughout the summer via both Zoom and in person, to plan timely communications on social media, the website and in weekly email messages. If anyone would like to join our committee or attend meetings in the future, please contact Beth Congbalay at or 847-682-8614. We welcome contributions from Assembly members to all of our communications outlets.
