Membership Committee Report February 2017

SCRID Membership Committee Report

February 2017

The Membership Committee reports:

  • We have not mailed out any new member cards since mid-January 2017. No new additional renewals or new memberships are currently being processed.

 

  • We are currently streamlining our method of double-checking and auditing the Wild Apricot Membership Database entries. We have assisted 1 member with membership needs since our last report, end of January 2017.

 

  • 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

 

  • 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.
