Web Meetings Pulling Leaders Together
February 18 was a day for gathering people together on the Web. Both the state association director Web meeting in the morning and the Alumni Coordinating Committee Web meeting in the evening went well.
There were 31 state association directors online. Curtis Barnett and other members of the State Association Directors’ Executive Committee led the discussion. This was the committee’s report on their January meeting in Florida and the opportunity for discussion and comment from other directors.
The Alumni Coordinating Committee Web conference was also well attended. Niki Clausen reports that the committee covered: national conference activities; the move of the 5K race to Friday during conference and how that will affect registration; increasing the number of entries in the Alumni Pin Design Contest; and, job descriptions for volunteers. They have at least two nominees for each of the coordinating positions coming open this year. Nominations are due in April. Niki also says the committee is grateful for the $100 gift card offered by Air Products for the winning pin design. Alumni membership now stands at 8,473 and 167 more applicants still have to be entered in the database. The alumni membership goal for the year is 15,000.
