Membership informs your work, connects you with your colleagues, and advances your career. Share knowledge, celebrate accomplishment, and lead the field.

Member Engagement Subcommittee

The Member Engagement Subcommittee supports and retains our new members with a focus on enhancing the member experience.

It works in collaboration with our staff, the Equity & Inclusion Committee, Nominating Committee as well as its parent Membership Committee. We formed the Member Engagement Subcommittee of the Membership Committee in the summer of 2020.

It helps to introduce new members to the organization, encourages members to take on volunteer leadership roles, provides support to first-time volunteers, recognizes the work of volunteers, and promotes ongoing member engagement, including promotion of membership designations.
