Membership Committee Report

Membership Development Committee Report - September 2016
Here are the latest membership stats:
Current members
Paid for up until 2017 conference: 108
Paid from 9/22/2015 on: 241
Delegates: 55

As you can see in the membership numbers, there is a large decline in membership after this year’s annual conference (this is not an anomaly).  In reviewing all of the membership numbers, there are many “nonmembers” once conference passes, even though they paid a month or so ahead of it. Thus these individuals only receive a one month membership. I know this is an old argument, but I recommend that we change the membership to one year from date of payment.  The database is robust enough for this change.  It would also represent a stronger and healthier organization; since most of the meeting votes would be from “members.“
