Our members are key to achieving our mission to “… preserve the quality of life in the Vieux Carre neighborhood, its historical character and architecture …” and to contribute to the resolution of problems confronting our neighborhood. We reach out to our members publishing the French Quarter Write four times per year. Our website is being reworked to improve communication with our members, and our Facebook presence provides still further opportunities to let the Officers and Board know what members think. FQC Alerts inform members of FQC activities and important community events and initiatives. Most members have attended at least one Quarterly Meeting and Potluck, as much an opportunity to get to know your neighbors as to exchange views with FQC Officers and Board members, and with special guests, often key elected and appointed officials. Recent guests have included NOPD Superintendent Ronal Serpas and 8th District leadership and Helena Moreno, our representative in the Louisiana House. Our Progressive Dinner, our major fund-raising event, has long been one of the best parties in the French Quarter, and makes a major contribution to our ability to reach our objectives.
