Membership Committee Report – January 2017

Membership Committee Report January 2017

SCRID Membership Committee Report

January 2017

The Membership Committee reports:

  • We have mailed out five (5) new member cards since late-November, with additional renewals and new memberships currently being processed. All mailed cards/Members have been verified as “Active” and “Paid” in Wild Apricot.  The remaining will be processed prior to the end of January 2017, and on-going.

 

  • Reminder – The “Certified – Senior Citizen” Membership Discounted Rate was passed at the May 2016 Meeting (05/14/16). (We have our first paid “Certified – Senior” Category Member!)   The Discount has been added to the SCRID Membership Renewal Page – through Wild Apricot/PayPal.  This Discounted Rate applies to Certified and Associate Member levels.  We have fielded some questions from members concerning submission of “verification of age”.  A valid CA Drivers License is adequate.  Please use your phone’s camera to snap a picture, then email it as an attachment to:

MembershipChair@SCRID.org

 

  • Members are reminded to ensure that their SCRID and RID Categories coincided/agreed. Paying for Certified RID Membership but only Associate SCRID Memberships (or Associate RID and Certified SCRID Memberships) is disallowed under both organizations’ policies, as well as the NAD-RID CPC, and misrepresents professional and certification standing.  Professionals with integrity will ensure that their Membership Categories match.  The Membership Committee will be working with the SCRID Board and RID National Office to ensure fair and adequate time frames for members to amend/align their professional Membership Categories.

 

  • The Membership Committee continues to audit our current membership, reconciling appropriately matching Membership Categories, Contact Information, and correctly identified Certification titles. An email reminder was sent out to all current, pending-new and pending-renewal members to ensure that SCRID and RID Membership Categories are the same.  Keep your information up to date with SCRID as well as with RID.  Members@RID.org can help out most general questions and needs.  (703) 838-0030, option # (press # key) (voice), or (571) 384-5163 (VP).
