The Communications Department publishes and provides editorial oversight to its major communication vehicle, the Montgomery Village News. The free newsletter is a quarterly publication distributed to more than 12,000 households in Montgomery Village. In addition, an online edition of the Village News offers all the news from the printed edition plus updated news and information in a timely manner.
The newsletter is designed to inform residents of policymaking decisions by the MVF Board of Directors and keep residents abreast of community meetings and outcome. Individual homes corporations and condominium associations also provide updates about their respective communities. The publication occasionally features spotlight articles on Village residents and also includes county-wide information and news of general local interest.
Additionally, the department is responsible for the design and maintenance of this website—keeping its content fresh and up-to-date; branding and visual identity; positioning the MVF and marketing the Village through community and media outreach; photography; and soliciting advertising and sponsorship opportunities. With the expertise of a professional staff, the communications department produces in-house publications, such as the Residents Guide (online only), seasonal recreation guides and other collateral marketing materials, which promote the activities and programs found in Montgomery Village.
