**Committee Name:  Membership Relations             



**Supervising Board Member:  Nanette Donohue



**Chair, Co-Chairs, Assistant Chairs:  Amy Gonzalez Ferguson

**Committee Charge:  Membership Relations is a new committee and does not have an official charge. I view the committee's unofficial charge as boosting current member relations and enhancing the NMRT experience for current members.




**2005 - 2006 Project Description / Goals: 


1.     Welcome all new NMRT members via e-mail or mail.

2.     Submit members' news for the “Headliners” column in Footnotes.

3.     Send information about NMRT committees to those who requested it in the Booth Committee's survey.

4.     Investigate additional projects that boost member relations.  Possible projects include:

a.       Surveying those who dropped their NMRT membership.

b.      Partnering with Membership Promotion, Recruitment and Diversity or other committees.




**Specific Objectives (numbers, tangible end-products): 


1.  Welcome letter to all new members

2.   “Headliners” column in Footnotes

3.  Information about NMRT to all who requested it
