Well, we're into the last month of my term as Association President. I have been blessed by a hardworking and dedicated Executive Committee – Bill Fly (Executive Vice President and 2013 Association President), Barbara Viola (Association Secretary), Michael Welch (Association Treasurer), and Jim Henry (2011 Association President). Each of them has brought considerable Association experience to the table, and each one deserves a round of applause for a "job well done”.
If you didn't have a chance to join us on the November Virtual Water Cooler, click here to view the slides that summarize the Annual Meeting of the Members in Green Bay and provide a third quarter update. One of the highlights of the third quarter is that we saw a 4.2% YTD membership increase through September 30th. Membership growth continued through October, with YTD membership up 6.2%. My "convert a guest to a member” challenge from a few months ago still stands. Our strength is in our Chapters, and that's where membership begins.
Speaking of membership, we are seeing some exciting early results from the Membership Marketing Survey that feeds into our 2013 Marketing Program. Details on this program can be found at https://aitp.site-ym.com/news/109671/AITP-Membership-Marketing-Plan.htm. If you did not participate yet in the Membership Marketing Survey, click here to take the Survey.
Last, but not least, we are looking for a few good volunteers for a new Web Development Team to continue development of our aitp.org capabilities. If you have an interest in helping, take a look at the article at http://www.aitp.org/news/110318.
Please accept my best wishes for a healthy and blessed holiday season!
