COMMITTEE UPDATE – MDC
[Ed. note: Excerpt from the committee report for the September Executive Board meeting.]


MEMBERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

Alice Rhoades and Marla Chesler, Co-Chairs
September 2008

NARRATIVE OF ACTIVITIES SINCE LAST REPORT ON MAY 2008

  • Jenni Wilson and Christine Stamison re-edited the [membership] brochure.  It was agreed that the brochure would benefit from a professional designer.  A budget and proposal for a design upgrade and printing expenses was submitted to the Board and we are waiting for a response.
  • Marla Chesler is in the process of obtaining updated membership and conference attendance data from Database & Directory.  We need to work with that committee to see if we can get better exported data on current members and their affiliations/job descriptions.
  • Once the updated data is obtained, we plan to do a promotion to non-member conference attendees, as well as continue with the membership renewal project.
  • The renewal reminder email has been drafted and is ready to send out once we have obtained an accurate list.
  • With an updated membership list, we will be able to update our annual statistics.
  • Tina Feick is working on an analysis of the membership, a project previously started by Bob Boissy.
  • The Mentoring Program took place successfully at the conference in June and a number of MDC members again participated.
  • It was suggested that we contact the Mexican Award winner in order to get suggestions for increasing the membership from Mexico.
  • We plan to continue work on the Membership Development Committee Guideline document and to update the committee webpage.
