Next Steps

So what’s the next step?

We’ve learned that one of the most important parts of MPNA is just letting people know who we are, what we're doing and how they can get involved.

The most challenging part of this is that different people want to get involved in different ways, to different degrees, at different times.

Some people aren’t ready to show up regularly to meetings but they do want to come out to a Linwood Cleanup to pitch in and get to know the group. Other people are ready to jump in and become a dues paying member ASAP, while others might live in a next-door neighborhood (like Classen Ten Penn) and just want to sign-up for our newsletter to keep up with MPNA News.

Wherever you’re at right now, here’s what you need to know to take your next steps.

Getting Started

These two activities are the best entry points to get involved with MPNA.

Regular Linwood Cleanup Days

At least once every three months we get together on a Saturday morning to cleanup Linwood Blvd and beautify our Linwood Triangle. In 2020, we officially adopted Linwood Blvd through the City of OKC's Adopt a Street Program. Since our Linwood Triangle landscaping project was completed in 2021, we've been meeting-up at the Triangle on our Linwood Cleanup Days and split our efforts between cleaning up Linwood and keeping the Triangle beautiful.

The best way to stay up-to-date on Linwood Cleanup days is to join the MPNA Linwood Cleanup Telegram Group (click here to learn more). The second best way is to follow MPNA on Instagram and Facebook.

Regular Member Meetings

Member meetings are where we plan and delegate. All neighbors are invited to MPNA Member meetings. 

The best way to stay up-to-date on Linwood Member Meetings is to join the MPNA Member Meetings Telegram Group (click here to learn more). You can also email the Leadership Team at for more information.

Other Projects

We have several other projects going on within MPNA. The best next move is to join one of our Telegram groups, email us and/or take one of the next steps listed below.

Sign-up for the Newsletter.

Our newsletter is our primary way of getting the word out and telling our story. It's called MPNA News. Its brand new in 2023, and its on Substack.

Substack is an awesome free tool for online publishers. We've set it up so that you can subscribe to one or multiple newsfeeds that will be delivered automatically to your email inbox.

The MPNA News newsfeeds are:

Each one of these is a separate content feed that you can administer separately. You're 100% in control of what you're subscribed to.

At the bottom of every email you receive is an "Unsubscribe" link that allows you to change what you're subscribed to or completely unsubscribe.

Go to the News page to learn more and subscribe.

Join the MPNA Google Calendar.

A shared online calendar is a simple yet extremely powerful tool for a neighborhood association. 

For example, have you ever been in the frustrating situation that you couldn't find the info for tonight's meeting? Maybe you couldn't remember whether it starts at 6:30 or 7:00, or more likely you just wanted to find the link to join the online call without having to dig and dig in your email inbox.

Or what about that event that the group scheduled three weeks ago at last month's Members Meeting? You forgot to write it down. Panic!

Subscribing to the MPNA Calendar means that you've got an app for that.

Your Google Calendar app (or other compatible calendar app) will keep all the basic neighborhood event info easily accessible to you. 

Go to the Calendar page and scroll down to find the step-by-step directions on how to subscribe.

Introduce Yourself. Get Involved.

Sometimes the best next step is to just say hello, introduce yourself and start a human conversation.

Feel free to email the MPNA Leadership Team at, or join one of our Telegram text groups. Both great starting points.

Neighbors can signup for membership through our website.

Signing up for MPNA membership is an easy online process. 

Go to the Join page for next steps.

You don't have to be an official MPNA member to get involved.

Some neighbors might hesitate to get involved because they think signing up for membership and paying annual dues is a requirement for participation in the group. It's not!

We believe it's important to have a formal membership structure, rules of operation, legal incorporation, a checking account, etc. It makes us a stronger and more capable group.

On the other hand, all of that is secondary to our mission: to build community and improve our neighborhood.

Formal membership is important, but it's not the most important thing.

This is a journey, not a race. 

We hope you'll choose which next steps you want to take and then begin.
