Membership Development Committee Report
Submitted on June 14, 201o by Wendy West, Chair

Highlights from this past year:

SUNYLA currently has 298 members including 45 new members and 29 delegates.

The MDC came up with the idea of creating a "toolbox" for the delegates.  Surveyed the delegates in the Fall of 2009 and reported the results.  At the council meeting in Albany, time was set aside for the Council members, delegates and MDC members to brainstorm about what the "toolbox" be be, where it should be located and what information it should contain.

MDC chair worked with the Treasurer to streamline the membership/payment processing and updated the Google document to reflect changes as soon as possible.   The chair also meet with the Treasurer and the President to discuss the implementation and the date for making the new more dynamic membership database available to the membership.  The database came into use this Spring and allows the members and delegates easier access to membership information.

The MDC received and answered requests for membership information and letters confirming membership for promotional/tenure purposes.  There was some confusion about the renewal date for memberships last year.  Since membership renewal was tied to the conference registration starting last year, some members forgot to renew their membership.  To avoid confusion this year, there will be a message going out on the listserv reminding folks to renew their memberships if they did not do so at the conference this year.

The MDC will be having a meeting on Thursday, June 17th, from 4:15 - 5pm in Edwards Hall in room 102.  The primary topic will be the committee's focus and projects for the upcoming year.  The meeting is open to all.
