Membership Affairs COMMITTEE REPORT

Special thanks is necessary to VVA President John Rowan for nominating me as the chair of the Membership Affairs Committee and to the VVA Board of Directors for approving my fourth consecutive tour of duty representing you on membership matters. Although the composition of the committee awaits final approval by the VVA Board during its October meeting, the work of improving membership recruitment and retention has continued since the Convention. The committee will present its VVA Chapter Membership Development Plan to the Conference of State Council Presidents and the VVA Board of Directors at the October meeting, and the committee hopes to have that plan on the VVA web site in the near future.

The contract to publish the 2008 VVA Membership Directory is being finalized; Harris-Connect again will be contacting all VVA and AVVA members for their information to be published in the directory, plus you will be asked if you wish to order the directory. The membership totals are slowly recovering from the annual February mass renewal cycle that occurs each year. I ask all VVA chapters to concentrate on the recovery of their non-renewed members and, of course, continue your recruitment efforts.

Going into 2008, the committee once again will evaluate our membership tools (applications, forms, and web site services). Be sure to check out our newest addition, “Frequently Asked Membership Questions” on the VVA web site. Remember: Your comments or suggestions are always welcome pertaining to improving your membership experience with VVA.
