The Membership Committee is comprised of members who have volunteered and are responsible for achieving steady and healthy growth and retention within the chapter. Recognizing that membership and participation is the livelihood of any organization, we actively recruit prospective members, reclaim former members and maintain current members. The Committee encourages members to get involved and to participate in chapter, regional, and national activities and events. The Committee also coordinates many events of its own including targeted recruiting events, membership appreciation receptions, social gatherings and other networking opportunities. Additionally, we are responsible for other routine tasks such as welcoming and introducing new members to the chapter, obtaining completed membership applications, maintaining the database of chapter members and surveying the members to determine their needs and level of satisfaction.
