DESCRIPTION: Formerly the Welcome Committee, now renamed to reflect its broader mission. This committee is one of the most active in the association. The Membership Outreach committee reaches out to new members to help them rapidly become active in our association. They work to identify and recruit new prospective members from cities and counties throughout the state and to reach out to inactive members. The committee reaches out to members in transition to provide support and notifies the Board of Directors of member retirements and untimely passings.
