Comments and Discussion

As is, Membership DB is of value to Chapters and Departments, but

  • Information not timely during year-end renewal crunch
  •  Information available to Chapters is far too limited.

What if you are on a phone call with someone who wants to join your Chapter. He is delinquent in his Association dues and does not know his Membership Number. [Kelly, John B, The Villages FL]

Therefore, it is imperative that more information be made available to Chapters

Recommendation to Department of Florida & Association

Support Website and Database—Association’s Most Valuable Asset

Support Association providing seasonal DB assistance

Request that Chapters have access to the general retrieval

That all DoF Chapters appoint a new Chapter Officer, Electronic and Database Manager
