Senior Vice President

VP of Membership

Since the June 18th update, only 2 new members entered phase 1, both of whom were reviewed and moved to phase 2. Phase 2 saw 6 new members enter with four having complete this stage and two through final memberfication. The remaining three as well as any other members who had previously completed phase 2 will be offered an opportunity to complete their final memberfication at events scheduled for later this week and in the future as needed. We did have some attrition in the last month with four members dropping from our role.

Exciting news to share is that I put out an open call for additional members to get involved in the membership process reconstituting an active Membership Committee. Two members, Isaiah Boyce and Thomas Burns, sat in on last weeks memberfication session to learn the process and have already been involved in helping to better capture and refine the process. We are working to get them all setup in our systems to enable them to lead the next memberfication sessions with my support. In addition to Isaiah and Thomas, Paul Lee and Emerson Craven have expressed interest in getting involved and will taken through the process in the near future.

This reconstitution of the Membership Committee as an active group will improve the membership process in a number of ways. First and perhaps most importantly, it will remove the risk of having only one person regularly involved in the onboarding process. At the moment when I might need to be away, the process largely would be on hold. In the near future this will be fully resolved allowing for a greater range of days and times where new members can complete the process. It will also enhance processes like the review and determination for issuing scholarships, allowing more voices to help shape the final decision on an application.

I think this is supposed to be done by whoever is running the meeting? Need better wording for this

> This is a reminder to check if any officer provided no report in three consecutive board meetings. If so, at this point in the Board meeting, we add an item to the subsequent Member Meeting agenda, to call for nominations or volunteers for the Board to appoint to that office at next month's Board meeting.
