Membership Committee

Charge:

To encourage participation of new, returning, and prospective Section members through orientations, social activities, promotional events/materials, and other mechanisms. The committee works with the Local Arrangements Chairs to coordinate IS Soirees and with the Executive Committee to organize membership orientations. Membership also conducts and reports on the Dropped Membership Survey, communicates with new and dropped members, updates the “FAQ for IS Members” and the IS Brochure. The Membership Committee co-chairs serve as the Section’s representatives on the ACRL Membership Advisory Committee.
