Membership Development Committee Report
« on: September 03, 2010, 10:19:19 AM »
Membership Statistics

As of Sept 3, 2010, there are 159 members in SUNYLA membership directory, including 10 new members.  In SUNYLA  there are 65 delegate positions; 21 delegates have been identified so far and 13 are currently members.

Minutes from the committee's last meeting:

Membership Development Committee
Meeting minutes
June 17, 2010

The committee met at the SUNYLA annual conference at Brockport to discuss the progress on the delegate toolbox and to decide what we would like to focus/work on this year.

At the SUNYLA Council meeting in March (Albany), Carleen was charged by the President (Rath) to take on the completion of the toolbox.  The MDC will support Carleen and the other delegates working on the toolbox as requested (by them).  Once the delegates are ready to have it placed on the SUNYLA web page a request will be sent to Logan Rath & Katherine Brendt.  [Wendy talked with April after the MDC meeting & since the toolbox was already approved by the council the project can move forward when ready).

This year the MDC would like to work on the following projects:

Creating a proposal to build a member profile (opt-in choice) into the membership database.  The database could include a photo, job title & description, interests, research activities, & links to facebook, twitter, etc.

Proposal to create a SUNYLA mentoring plan

Proposal to have regional meetings so that delegates (only delegates??) could get together at times other than the council meetings and the annual conference.

Create a new member kit to be given to new members along with some kind of gift.  Packet should include:  welcome letter from the president, information about programs, grants, etc.

Create some kind of promotional material to give out to possible new members (possibly a pdf or document that can be emailed).

The committee agreed to work on these items by using a shared Google document.
