Charge & Purpose

The Membership Committee is established by vote of the Board. The Membership Committee serves to:

  • Create strategies that will increase and diversify the membership.
  • Promote the benefits of membership.
  • Implement membership campaigns as approved by the Board.


The Membership Committee voting members shall be composed of:

  • At least 5 but no more than 9 members in good standing.
    • At least two Institutional Members
    • At least two Corporate Members
  • A chair or co-chairs selected from the committee members.


Those appointed to the committee shall serve two-year staggered terms. Co-chairs, if utilized, shall be on staggered terms. Terms shall start at the beginning of the fiscal year for which members are first appointed. Members and chairs may be appointed to consecutive terms. The Board may fill vacancies within a term and may change the term of any individual who is unable to fulfill the activities of the committee.

Time Commitment:

The expected time commitment is 2 hours a month, or 20 hours per year. The committee meets no less than once per quarter, or more frequently to meet deliverables and milestones. Meetings are held virtually, and some activities may be asynchronous. Members may have occasional follow-up assignments outside of meetings (for example, reviewing or editing a membership drive plan, or doing outreach to members and non-members).

Activities and Deliverables:

  • Provide regular updates to the Executive Director and Board.
  • Develop strategies and their implementations that will increase and diversify the membership.
  • Advise the Board on identified benefits of membership and make recommendations for new benefits.
  • Assist with the planning and the implementation of marketing and recruiting campaigns.
