I want to thank the members that were able to attend our annual meeting, held in conjunction with The Experience, in Atlanta on April 27, 2018. It was a great success. I am happy to report that we have four new Board members joining us for the 2018-2019 term. If you get a chance, please welcome them.
Growing our association membership has been a struggle over the last few years…not just for SCRT, but all trade associations. Membership is our number one resource of revenue. When it is down, we struggle financially. This has forced us to continually reevaluate our fixed expenses and programs. I am happy to report that we have managed to find ways to save without affecting any program offerings.
Our Board of Directors is focused on our main goal…keeping our current members and adding new members. We feel we can best accomplish this by creating value-added programs for our membership. I would like to thank Heather Mayeur, our Administrator, and the Board for their support and renewed enthusiasm for growing SCRT’s membership.
One objective is growing our Associate Members by creating programs that help promote their businesses to our members while providing member discounts for products, equipment and training. I would like to thank Larry Carlson for chairing this committee.
Another objective is to revitalize the Chapters by having regularly scheduled meetings and creating some face-to-face time amongst our members. The Board has approved additional funds to help these chapters grow and perhaps establish new Chapters. I would like to thank Dick Wagner and Jim Clarke for leading the charge on this.
I would ask every member company or Board member to reach out to a company that is not a member and invite them to join. It’s amazing how we can grow our membership if everyone added just one member.
Feel free to reach out to Heather or the Board with any ideas to help our association grow. Thank you!
